Wetland Ecology

Students in biology, environmental conservation studies, forestry, plant biology, environmental sciences, wildlife and conservation biology, and related majors should consider obtaining a minor in wetland ecology. There is a strong demand among consulting firms, private conservation groups, and state and federal agencies for employees with knowledge and experience relevant to wetland resource management.  The minor consists of 20 credits (totaling five courses) with grades of C- or better, and no pass/fail courses. No more than 8 credits used to satisfy major requirements may be used for the minor.
