Ecology, Evolution & Conservation

What will you study?

From molecules to ecosystems, all living systems show the traces of their evolutionary history. Ecology provides the context for this history by helping us to understand how organisms interact with each other and the environment.

Learn more about these interactions by exploring questions such as:

  • How do organisms make decisions that affect their growth, reproduction, and survival?
  • Why do organisms form social groups?
  • How did humans evolve?
  • How do  human activities  impact our environment and what can we do to prevent the loss of biodiversity and manage species at risk?
Graduates of this concentration meet the academic requirements to apply for certification as a Registered Professional Biologist (RPBio) through the College of Applied Biology.
