Wildlife and Conservation Biology Minor


The minor in Wildlife and Conservation Biology serves as a concentrated study, beyond a student's primary major, that allows students to explore their interest in wildlife ecology and conservation and their passion for nature and the outdoors.

A maximum of 2 EcoQuest courses may be used to satisfy requirements. Appropriate course substitutes from other study-abroad programs may also be used with permission.
