The ecology, evolution, and natural resources curriculum provides an understanding of how natural living systems function and evolve, and how they can be managed to conserve biodiversity while providing benefits to people. Students may pursue coursework that prepares them for traditional careers in resource management or they may take a broader array of courses that meets interests related to the conservation of natural resources and the ecology and evolution of natural systems. Graduates may pursue further study at the graduate level or find career opportunities in academia and in public or private organizations involved in the management of natural resources. The major provides a broad general understanding of the functioning, significance, and conservation of living systems. The flexibility of this major is intended to meet a variety of student interests and needs. Students are encouraged to organize curricular and elective courses to fulfill simultaneously the requirements of a minor or certificate program. Particularly appropriate are the Minor in Sustainability; the Minor in Urban Forestry; the Certificate in Environmental Geomatics; and the Certificate in Evolutionary Medicine.
