With a well-rounded education in biology, all tracks prepare undergraduates for entry into graduate schools, health related fields (medical, nursing, dentistry, veterinary) and the job market, including careers in scientific research, conservation, environmental law and policy, biotechnology, forensics, agriculture, education, science policy, non-profits, and local, state and federal agencies. The availability of various tracks allows students to tailor a degree program towards their specific interests.
The Environmental Track is the broad study of organisms and their ecological environments. Through these courses, students investigate organisms in their aquatic, terrestrial, and geological habitats. Environmental systems courses cover populations, communities, ecosystems, and landscape scale questions.
