Does the institution offer at least one ​sustainability-focused​ major, degree, or certificate program for undergraduate students?:
Yes

Name of the sustainability-focused undergraduate degree program:
Bachelor of Science in Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Ecology with an option in Aquatic Ecology and Management

A brief description of the undergraduate degree program:

The Bachelor of Science in Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Ecology with an option in Aquatic Ecology and Management, and the Bachelor of Science in Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Ecology with an option in Wildlife Ecology and Management are similar programs that differ primarily in the extent to which higher-level classes required emphasize aquatic or wildlife areas of study. The programs are also designed to facilitate certification as a wildlife biologist by the Wildlife Society or as a fisheries biologist by the American Society of Fisheries. Such certification by professional organizations may enhance career opportunities with federal or state agencies.

Bachelor of Science in Conservation Ecology

A brief description of the undergraduate degree program (3rd program):

The Bachelor of Science in Conservation Ecology is a degree program offered jointly with the Department of Biology. The goal of this program is to train students for the current and future challenges that we face in the conservation and wise use of Earth's natural resources. An overriding principle of the program is to provide a solid foundation in the basic sciences coupled with a practical approach towards sustainability and stewardship. The curriculum encompasses several disciplines and includes a wide variety of courses from Biology, Fish, Wildlife & Conservation Ecology, Geography, Geology, Government, and Range Science.

Conservation Ecology Minor Degree

A brief description of the undergraduate minor or concentration (2nd program):

A minor in Conservation Ecology is available for students who choose to major in other areas, but wish to include Conservation Ecology in their academic training. A minor in Conservation Ecology must include a minimum of 20 credits in the discipline with 9 of these coming from upper-division courses.

These degree programs are available both to students in our major programs (that is, students pursuing a BS major in Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Ecology or students pursuing a BS major in Conservation Ecology), and to students in any other undergraduate program across campus. The only exception is that students pursuing a BS in Fish Wildlife and Conservation Ecology, can only receive the minor in Conservation Ecology. Similarly, students pursuing a BS in Conservation Ecology can only receive the minor in Wildlife Science.
Interested students who have questions about the minors are encouraged to reach out to a faculty member. We would be happy to discuss the degrees with you.
