FOR 400: Human Dimensions of Forestry and Natural Resources (3)
Course Description: Prereq: This course is approved to fulfill the Graduation Composition and Communication Requirement (GCCR) for forestry majors.

This course provides partial credit for the written component of the GCCR for the forestry major in conjunction with FOR 480.

This course is a Graduation Composition and Communication Requirement (GCCR) course in certain programs, and hence is not likely to be eligible for automatic transfer credit to UK.
