It is more than just Land Judging. The study of Soil integrates:
- field-based learning
- classroom lessons
This gives graduates scientific experience necessary in a wide variety of careers revolving around the proper use and protection of soil.
Credit hours of soil courses required for entry level employment positions vary. Specific opportunities exist for students completing courses beyond the introductory soil course. These opportunities exist in both the public and private sector.
Specifically in the public sector, the USDA, Natural Resource Conservation Service has positions as soil conservationists and soil scientists. And soil scientists are employed as Extension agents, USFS Soil Scientists, US Core of Engineers for Wetland delineation, and Bureau of Land Management Ecologists.
Outstanding students can expand the educational experience because opportunities exist to interact with graduate students both in the classroom setting and in field settings as while solving environmental problems.
