We are the only applied ecology department in the U.S. But that’s only one of several qualities that makes us special. Our graduate and undergraduate programs encourage students to become disciplinary and interdisciplinary scientists, engage in research projects with faculty and pursue leadership roles.
You will find a positive and supportive environment of committed faculty members who will guide you on your path. We offer prospective graduate students several degree options in biology, environmental assessment or fisheries, wildlife, and conservation biology. Undergraduate students interested in ecological concepts and principles can minor in applied ecology or enroll in our undergraduate courses, regardless of major or department.
