The mission of the Bachelor of Science: Ecology program is to provide students an innovative and applied undergraduate education in ecology, the study of relationships between organisms and their environments. We educate our students in the scientific and quantitative skills needed to work at scales from genes to the biosphere and from minutes to millennia. Our program strongly supports student engagement in ecological research and community outreach through internships, cooperative education, and thesis opportunities.
The BS: Ecology degree is appropriate for students interested in careers as diverse as fish and wildlife biology, statistical ecology, agroecology, botany, forestry, conservation biology, disease ecology, and landscape ecology. Ecologists are most frequently hired by universities, research institutions, private consulting firms and industry, state and federal government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and zoos and aquariums. In addition, the curriculum is tailored to provide all the coursework necessary for students to apply for professional certification from several ecological organizations (Ecological Society of America, The Wildlife Society, and The American Fisheries Society) and to attend top M.S. or Ph.D. graduate programs in ecology-related fields.
