Animal Ecology

Students majoring in Animal Ecology will learn basic principles of animal biology, ecology and management.
Animal Ecology courses cover interactions of animals with one another and with a wide variety of plant communities and aquatic ecosystems.
Graduates find work as fisheries or wildlife technicians, environmental educators, conservation officers, fish farmers, zoo biologists, and in wildlife rehabilitation. Many choose to continue their education in graduate programs, including veterinary medicine.
