Conservation and Biodiversity (Major and Specialist)

flowers

The Conservation and Biodiversity program provides a foundation for understanding how ecology and evolution shape organismal features and the structure and function of communities and ecosystems. This foundation is then applied to understand the drivers of the current global biodiversity crisis and approaches to mitigating these impacts. Topics covered in this program range from population dynamics to the structure and function of ecosystems, and from the evolution of behavior, morphology, and physiology to the origin of species. This program will show how ecological and evolutionary perspectives can be used to understand and predict the outcome of dynamic interactions among organisms, populations, species, and communities. Students will be well trained to take positions in government agencies, consulting firms or NGO's; be able to continue graduate studies in science for academic careers; or be able to pursue careers in business or law related to environmental issues, stewardship and sustainable development.
