Welcome to the Environmental Biology (EVB) website! What is the EVB degree? It is a biology degree that specifically focuses on environmental issues. The interests of EVB majors cover a wide range of topics. Students in the program are interested in:

  • Natural Resources Management
  • Pollution
  • Ecology
  • Ecotoxicology
  • Conservation
  • Renewable Energy
  • Wildlife Rehabilitation
  • Many, Many Other Topics

The keystone experience of an EVB degree is an internship that allows a student to follow their specific interests and to gain hands on, real world, experience. Our graduates have gone on to graduate school or to work at state and federal agencies, zoos, nature centers, consulting firms and many, many other places. This website should give you a good introduction to our program. If you have any questions, please contact me.
