200+ Enrolled Students
Preparing the next generation with fundamental ecological knowledge and its application to biodiversity conservation, environmental health, and the management of complex systems, such as interactions involving aspects of ecology from genes to ecosystems, landscapes, hydrology, and climate.
A broad path of discovery
“One of the biggest motivators for me to get a degree in ECCB is the diversity of classes that you can take. The degree plan covers such a wide range of topics that you can take a class with unfamiliar content and fall in love with it, and potentially discover a career path you want to pursue. From ornithology, and plant biology to mammalogy ECCB truly has it all.”
