Bachelor of Science in Environmental Biology

Do you want to examine human impact on the environment or discover how genetic variation results in organism adaptation and evolution? Apply interdisciplinary skills, such as geographic information systems, statistics and environmental instrumentation, to solve environmental problems in a changing landscape - and become directly involved in solving them - through environmental biology.

Our programs emphasize scientific knowledge and theory partnered with hands-on experience in the laboratory and in the field. Biology majors enjoy individualized attention from our faculty and are encouraged to participate in undergraduate research opportunities with them.

The B.S. in environmental biology is a specialized degree based on the fundamentals of biology and ecology, and it provides you with the skills needed to address current environmental issues. The environmental biology program builds on the framework of the biology degree, and it incorporates additional science courses to prepare you for work in this interdisciplinary field. You will be qualified for field and laboratory careers in environmental ecology, government service, private industry and consulting.
