Ecology and Organismic Biology

The Ecology and Organismic Biology emphasis is designed for students interested in ecology, environment, and organismic biology (zoology, botany, mycology). The curriculum is flexible in order to meet the interests of students who wish a greater degree of specialization in ecology and organismic biology and desire to pursue research in these areas on the graduate level.

See additional information on the Academic Programs page and on the Biology Careers page under Field Biology, Environment, and Conservation.
