Area V – Forestry
AREA V: PRE-PROFESSIONAL MAJOR AND ELECTIVE COURSES FOR FORESTRY MAJORS AT AUBURN UNIVERSITY (17 or 18 Semester Hours)
Students transferring to Auburn University seeking a degree in Forestry are allowed to transfer up to 17 or 18 hours from Area V for this 120 hour program.
Students transferring more than 30 hours from all areas (I-V) should contact the Student Services Office in the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences before completing the 30 hours to make sure they meet the course requirements for Summer Practicum (firstname.lastname@example.org
Summer Practicum is the beginning of the professional degree program with specific course requirements and serves as a prerequisite for all the required courses in the junior and senior years.
Recommendations for Area V:
- Students should take a course in oral communication (SPH 106) or speech (SPH 107) in addition to the Area II requirements.
- Students should take a course in statistic MTH 265.
- Students should take a chemistry sequence either CHM 104 and 105 (preferred) or CHM 111 and 112.
- If transferring with at least two semesters prior to attending Summer Practicum, take the chemistry sequence, CHEM 1010 and CHEM 1020, at Auburn rather than CHM 111 and 112.
- Students should complete the chemistry sequence at one institution.
- No transfer credit will be awarded for math courses below MTH 113 Pre-Calculus Trigonometry. Students not transferring a qualified course are strongly encouraged to have completed all pre-calculus courses (MTH 100 and MTH 112) prior to transferring.
- Developmental, remedial, or technical courses will not transfer.
- Other courses offered at your community college, including courses that are listed in Area V for other majors, may be accepted. However, students must petition Auburn University to pre-approve any additions to Area V by contacting Dr. Jodie Kenney at email@example.com. It must be noted that courses that are equivalent to upper level courses at Auburn University (3000 level and above) are generally not accepted for transfer credit.
