Department of Ecology and Conservation Biology

The Department of Ecology and Conservation Biology (ECCB) provides one of the most advanced educational opportunities available to prepare undergraduate students for leadership in the science and stewardship of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. The ECCB Bachelor of Science degree emphasizes the acquisition of fundamental ecological knowledge and its application to biodiversity conservation, environmental health, and the management of complex systems. The program highlights ecological processes that range from genes to ecosystems including principles related to landscape, hydrology, and climate. Four tracks (Ecology and Conservation Biology, Ecoinformatics, Forest Resources, and Vertebrate Zoology) are offered to provide flexibility in one’s chosen career path.
