Conservation Biology Minor
Environmental biologists explore the ways in which organisms evolve and interact with one another and their environments. Levels of exploration can range from molecular evolution and genomics to ecosystem level function. Conservation biology makes up one component of this field, focusing on the biological knowledge necessary to preserve biodiversity. Because the loss of biodiversity has reached crisis proportions, we offer a focused curriculum that enables you to bring appropriate biological tools and knowledge to efforts to develop conservation strategies and policies. This curriculum is designed to provide this focus, and to allow you to design a curriculum that will prepare you for research and teaching in environmental and conservation biology.
