Conservation and Resource Studies is an interdisciplinary program designed for those who are interested in environmental issues and areas of interaction among natural resources, population, energy, technology, societal institutions, and cultural values. Students draw on the course offerings of the entire campus and appropriate community resources in the development of individual programs of study.

The CRS minor is oriented toward flexibility and an individualized educational approach to understanding the structure and dynamic functions of complex environmental systems within society and the biosphere. It encourages interaction among students, faculty, and community.
