The major in Environmental Biology is a focused course of study intended for students who are planning for professions in which they will apply what they have learned in the major to professional positions and/or further education focused on conservation biology, environmental preservation, human health, and public policy.
The major should appeal to individuals who are interested in seeking employment with environmental agencies of federal, state, and municipal governments or non-governmental organizations; and in private industry, including environmental consulting firms. The program also may appeal to individuals planning to enter the field of environmental law. Moreover, students who complete the proposed new major and elect to take two of the three electives at the 600 level will be able to enter directly into the 4+1 program in Environmental Biology combined bachelors and masters degrees for advanced study.
