Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology Concentration

Our Bachelor of Science in Biology with concentration in Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology (concentration code EEMB) is an excellent choice for students interested in pursuing graduate studies in environmental or evolutionary biology. In addition, graduates in this concentration will be well prepared for careers in federal and state environmental agencies and laboratories, botanical gardens and arboretums, wildlife refuges, coastal restoration companies, zoological parks and aquariums, environmental assessment and consulting firms, and marine stations.  

Our faculty and students associated with this concentration are studying coastal loss and restoration, endangered species and wildlife conservation, fisheries ecology and management, deep-sea and coastal biology, evolutionary and ecological responses to pollution and climate change, and the factors shaping the evolution of biodiversity.  Undergraduate students can obtain credit working in a lab with a biology faculty member on some of these projects.
