The master’s degree program in Environmental Biology bridges the sciences to real-world socioeconomics and politics. Comprehensive core requirements — ecology, pollution, biology, resource management, biostatistics — lead to a choice of research and nonresearch tracks. Cutting-edge techniques, such as remote sensing and GIS, open new windows to protecting and developing natural resources. Students enrolled in the 33-credit master's degree program can also earn a certificate in GIS with the completion of 9 core credits and 9 electives credits.
