Option Applied Ecology Undergraduate Option  

   Print Version Print

This option is offered within the following major(s):
Environmental Sciences - College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences



Also available via Ecampus.


The Applied Ecology option is for Environmental Sciences students who seek to orient their studies around ecology. This is applied ecology and therefore includes geographic methods for measuring and data collection in ecological change. Students seeking a concentration in policy and management are encouraged to consider the Conservation, Resources, and Sustainability option.



Students should first complete BI 370 Ecology (3).
