Biology, B.S., Environmental Science Concentration

Chair: Dr.Justin Merry
Program Coordinator: Dr. Lane Loya

The Biology, B.S., Environmental Science Concentration has been designed for those students highly interested in the environmental side of biology. Students have the opportunity to complete specialized courses related to the environment such as Ecology, Field Biology, Freshwater Aquatics, and Conservation Biology, while still maintaining a solid foundation in the traditional Biological Sciences. This concentration prepares students for both jobs and graduate school in a wide variety of environmental-related fields such as wildlife biology, entomology, resource conservation, environmental law, and environmental education. Students in this program also have the opportunity to do ecological research with faculty and to participate in our Immersion Semester program at the Raystown Field Station.


Those considering participation in the SFU/Duke University cooperative program should follow recommendations for graduate study. Those choosing the 3-2 option may have to accelerate their program at Saint Francis and should see their advisors as soon as possible for a detailed description of the program.
