Joint B.S./M.S. in Biodiversity and Conservation Biology

Students enrolling in this program as undergraduates obtain upon completion a joint B.S./M.S. degree through an integrated 5-year plan of study. Students who already hold a Bachelor of Science degree can apply for just the non-thesis Master of Science degree; in this case two years may be required to complete the program. The curriculum includes coursework in ecology, evolution, systematics, and natural history, with relevant training in public policy, economics, and ethics. Potential career tracks range from conservation planning to environmental education, endangered species management to museum curation. Potential employers include non-governmental organizations, state and federal agencies, and environmental consulting firms. Nearly 90% of the program’s graduates find employment in the field.
