The University of Denver's Bachelor of Arts program in ecology and biodiversity offers students a cross-disciplinary focus on these two fields. Students complete 44 credit hours of biology coursework. The BA degree allows students flexibility to combine their interests in biology with other disciplines such as law, policy or business.
Our biological sciences department provides specialized upper-level coursework taught by active researchers in the discipline, along with the opportunity to collaborate with faculty on in-depth research. Students can access cutting-edge research and go to several exciting field sites. Research opportunities encompass plant-insect interaction, ecology of invasive species, and forest ecology and evolutionary biology. Graduates can leave well prepared for jobs or graduate work in a range of areas related to ecology and evolutionary biology.
