Major Requirement Worksheets

The major requirement worksheets are designed to allow a student in Environmental Studies or Hydrologic Sciences and Policy to print out and manually check their progress towards graduation. Be sure to download and use the major requirement sheet for the year you officially declared the major as requirements can change from year to year.  All worksheets are in .PDF format.

Online progress and degree checks are available to all ES and Hydrologic Sciences majors!  Student who wish to check their progress with General Education, University and Major requirements should login to GOLD, go under "Progress", then select "Major & GE Progress Check" from the menu, and then scroll down and click on "Degree Audit".  This produces a current evaluation of how completed courses and exams are applied towards all three requirements.  Unfortunately, due to technical programing issues, the degree audit does not work for those pursuing a double major.  You will need to check with both department academic advisors to check on your major requirement status.  Any questions about General Education (GE) and University requirements should be directed to the College of Letters and Science Advising office.  You can download a worksheet on how do access your degree audut by clicking here.

The Four Year Plan and GE Worksheets:

These worksheets are designed to assist ES or Hydro majors with course scheduling and allow for orderly progression through all graduation requirements (including GE and University requirements) within a four year period. This is not the only acceptable approach, but an example of one that works.

Create Your Own Environmental Emphasis Worksheet:

Because of the interdisciplinary design of the Environmental Studies majors (B.A. and B.S.) students are afforded the opportunity to select/customize their upper-division elective and outside concentration courses to create a distinct “environmental concentration.” A student may choose to take a wide selection of courses covering a breadth of disciplines or pursue a specific emphasis or track. Students who are trying to decide what to take for these sections may want to review the "How to Use the ES Major To Create Your Own Environmental Emphasis" worksheet. This information sheet demonstrates how one may utilize the upper-division to create to create a specific environmental concentration. By no means are these the only possible tracks, but does offer some example emphases that have traditionally been popular with ES students. Download the Supplemental Emphases Worksheet.
