University Majors

California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo
Biological Sciences B.S. Concentration in Ecology

This degree program offers students a broad education in biology -- from molecules to ecosystems. It prepares students for the biomedical fields, for teaching, for certification as an Associate Ecologist, Fisheries Biologist, or Associate Wildlife Biologist. The B.S. in Biological Science degree gives students technical competency in a number of concentrations and is an excellent base for graduate school studies. The study of ecology spans a wide breadth of habitats, from terrestrial to marine, and multiple scales of organization -- from microbial interactions to global processes. The ecology concentration allows students the flexibility to design a program to fit their interests and career goals. The concentration emphasizes collection and analysis of data to better understand the factors that impact the distribution and abundance of organisms. In many contexts, these results are used to identify and solve environmental problems. Graduates from the ecology concentration are prepared to pursue careers in education, ecological consulting, ecological planning or coordination, habitat restoration, or environmental law.
