Students who study in the Department of Soil, Water, and Climate at the University of Minnesota want to have an impact on the world we live in. You can work with and learn from experts in climate change, water quality, soil heath, and sustainability.

The St. Paul campus and CFANS is a close-knit community with all the benefits of a Big Ten University and the Twin Cities. You'll have the opportunity to do hands-on learning in your courses or in a lab. 

You can be part of SWAC as an undergraduate student by declaring a major or minor, taking a course, becoming a Soil Judge, or coming to a department event. We are here to welcome you and help you succeed.
