The ecological concentration of the biology major focuses on the interactions of organisms and their environment and the tools to quantify those relationships. Students study everything from herpetology and aquatic zoology to plant ecology and ecological field techniques to examine life at the level of ecosystems. Courses, fieldwork both regionally and in other climate and environments, as well as faculty-mentored undergraduate research opportunities, provide diverse and direct hands-on experiences in ecological studies.
Job options for graduates of the ecological concentration:
Environmental impact analyst
Water resource analysis and management
Fish and wildlife management
The ecological concentration is offered through the Biology major.
