Marine, Freshwater, and Environmental Biology
The Department of Biological Sciences provides this program for undergraduate majors who are interested in careers studying marine, freshwater or terrestrial organisms and their environments. Courses meet the requirements for admission to graduate programs in marine biology, zoology, ecology, and conservation biology. The program also provides the necessary background for jobs with state and federal agencies (e.g., USDA or EPA) charged with environmental protection, research and monitoring, and information.
Tier II social science electives can be chosen to meet the requirements of the Environmental Studies Certificate in conjunction with the environmental biology track. For federal job and employment information, see http://www.usajobs.opm.gov/
