Our undergraduate program is designed to teach fundamental concepts related to the origins and ecology of species, populations, and communities. Students with examine habitats at all levels of biological organization, ranging from the evolution of genes and genomes, to the diversification of species over time, including the function and biogeography of ecological communities, including forest, savanna and wetland ecosystems.
ECCB students will be well-prepared for admission into a graduate or professional programs or for scientific careers in ecology and related fields of study in biological conservation and natural resource management. The department will offer an undergraduate major in ecology and conservation biology with four major tracks.
Ecology and Conservation Biology
We have a close working relationship with American Fisheries Society (AFS) and the Society of American Foresters (SAF), who will serve as the accreditation bodies for this degree program. Individual tracks will position graduates to move directly into specificialized fields that address emerging ecological, biological and environmental issues. These include, but are not limited to
Forestry | Natural Resource Conservation | Veterinary Medicine | Fisheries Ecology | Biodiversity Assessment | Environmental Management
