The University of Denver's undergraduate program in ecology and biodiversity offers a cross-disciplinary learning focus across ecology and organismal biology. Students complete 49 credit hours of biology, a minor in another natural sciences and mathematics field, and a second minor from any department across the University. The BS degree appeals to students interested in continuing in the sciences at the graduate level or pursing medical school.
Students take courses on evolution, biodiversity, genetics and physiological systems, delivered in small classes. In addition, they complete lab work connected with in-class coursework, while using cutting-edge equipment and visiting field sites.
This program can offer research opportunities to undergraduates in invasive species, plant-insect interactions, evolutionary biology and forest ecology. During their research, our students are supported by active researchers in their fields.
