In addition to the core, students will select a minimum of 17 semester credits to meet a specific interest or career goal. That goal may not be satisfied by emphasis areas above. Examples might include agriculture journalism, natural resources, GIS/GPS, or international agriculture. The program must be approved by an advisor, department chair, and the dean.
Open Elective Courses (39-42 Credits, 5-8 upper division)
Total Credits, B.I.S. degree: 120 (40 upper division)
Students are strongly encouraged to consult their advisor before selecting coursework. Some courses are only taught one semester per year or every other year. Also, note that a grade below “C-” will not fulfill degree requirements.
