For students who have broad interests in agriculture and natural resources that are not met by a traditional major or blend of academic programs, the Dean’s Scholar program provides a way to design a curriculum specific to the students’ interests. Under the supervision of a faculty advisor, students develop an in-depth and creative plan of study to meet the total credit hours for graduation. Admission to the Dean’s Scholar program requires a proposal and an application during the third or fourth semester at the university.
