The Odum School of Ecology uses a multidisciplinary approach to provide an unparalleled experience to its undergraduate students. To be prepared for careers in ecology, students are provided a solid foundation in the fundamental sciences of biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics and data analysis. With these tools, students then investigate more broadly the patterns of biodiversity through elective courses in geography, anthropology, natural history, environmental law and a host of other subjects. The Odum School offers doctoral, master’s, and certificate programs that provide students with an interdisciplinary course of study, allowing them to develop a broad background in ecology and related disciplines. Our graduates have gone on to successful careers in academia as well as the public and private sectors. Our alumni are employed in a variety of positions, including as university faculty, policy analysts, conservation directors, executives in nonprofit organizations, and officers in government agencies.
