The critical importance of natural resources and environmental quality to modern society demands that aspiring biologists both understand natural ecosystems and learn to be effective problem solvers. The Department of Environmental and Forest Biology (EFB) is committed to ensuring these educational outcomes. The department offers a dynamic array of professional opportunities in biology via course work enriched by an active program of research.
Through a suite of electives in addition to a required core, undergraduate students may customize their studies toward a particular field of interest. Graduate students may pursue master's or doctoral degrees within several areas of study.
Both undergraduates and graduates can take advantage of the rich variety of academic programs in EFB, which introduce concepts of biodiversity conservation, physiology, and ecology of plants, animals, and microorganisms, and emphasize the interactions and changes in biological systems in the context of the broad fields of aquatic and wetland sciences; biotechnology and chemical ecology; conservation biology; environmental interpretation; fisheries and wildlife biology; forest health; and global, landscape, and urban ecology.
