Global Resource Systems

Global Resource Systems studies the way the world uses its limited resources to create sustainable systems. And for our undergrads, the most valuable education takes place outside of the classroom. By integrating social, agricultural and natural sciences, GRS majors learn how to efficiently use the world’s resources on an international level. International internships directly expose students to their area of expertise to understand how fields interact on a global scale. With GRS you can take courses that change the course of world issues.
