Learning outcomes

Range Sciences student research and academic programs at North Dakota State University are tailored to individual student needs and interests. Interdisciplinary approaches to range science programs are fostered.

Each student must choose an adviser, usually based upon area of academic and research interest, within the first program year. By the end of the first year of residence, the student must have selected an advisory/supervisory committee and have an approved graduate plan of study, including a research proposal. The advisory/supervisory committee advises the student and administers the graduate exams to the student. Students are referred to the Range Science Graduate Student Handbook for information regarding additional requirements.
