Students should apply to the department as soon as possible after making the decision to major in urban ecology. The department encourages interested students to speak with an urban ecology adviser about this specialization before declaring a major. Advisers are assigned when the student applies for acceptance as a major. Grades in biology courses lower than a C- do not count toward the total number of semester hours required for the biology specialization.
The following courses are required for the degree:
The Urban Ecology program is flexible by design. The built-in flexibility allows students to take the complement of courses that will best meet the requirements of the urban ecology sub-discipline that they wish to pursue. Careful planning with the Urban Ecology adviser is strongly recommended to maximize the quality of the Urban Ecology degree.
