Environmental Biology

Concentration/Emphasis

Develop a deep understanding of conservation and restoration of natural habitats and species.

The environmental biology program is designed for students who are interested in science and want to apply their studies to addressing environmental problems. The curriculum is heavy on field-based coursework in the forest, streams, grasslands and wetlands surrounding Pacific University. Projects include ecological restoration, species conservation and the development of land-use recommendations for regional land owners.

Students have many opportunities to conduct independent research with the support of faculty, often in partnership with local organizations. They build valuable relationships with land-use agencies, such as METRO and Clean Water Services.
