Conservation Biology and Ecology

Main page content

Conservation Biology and Ecology is one of three study options under the Environmental Science major. Within the Environmental Science major, students are guided to additional coursework in conservation biology, biodiversity, and ecology, and are given the opportunity to develop deeper skills in methods applicable to these areas. Our faculty’s teaching and research interests span these topics and more. Our program emphasizes high impact practices such as undergraduate research, experiential and active learning, internships, and service learning, and projects that are use-inspired and community engaged.
