The specialized BS degree in Marine and Conservation Biology provides students with field experiences to engage with relevant local and global environmental issues. The major is designed for students who want to focus on exploring biodiversity, the web of relationships among organisms, the changing dynamics of ecosystems, and more. Seattle's proximity to mountain ranges, old growth forests, lakes, and rivers, as well as the marine habitats of Puget Sound and the open coast serve as living laboratories for our courses and research endeavors. 

All our Biology degrees enable students to develop the skills in critical thinking, quantitative problem-solving, and scientific research that provides the foundation for success in future biological endeavors. With the help of your faculty advisor, you can tailor your coursework to meet your educational and post-graduation ambitions.
