Field Biology and Environment

The Field Biology and Environment emphasis is designed for students interested in the practice of conservation, fish or wildlife management, interpretation, pollution control, and environmental protection. The successful student may apply for entry-level jobs leading to careers working for state and federal agencies, engineering consulting firms, environmental organizations, and others. Alternatively, students may apply to graduate schools in natural resources management, environmental biology, or environmental science.

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