Biology with Ecology Emphasis (BS)

The growing significance of environmental issues to the overall health of our world in the new century requires more individuals who are scientifically trained to contribute to solving environmental problems.

The BS in Biology with Ecology emphasis is designed to provide in-depth training for students planning to do research in various areas of environmental sciences as either graduate students or employees of environmental agencies and companies. The curriculum includes the same foundational lecture and laboratory courses in the areas of cell biology, genetics, and ecology taken by general biology majors. Additional coursework focuses specifically on topics related to ecology.
