Animal Conservation and Care
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Green Mountain College in Poultney, VT
Our attitudes toward animals are related to how we eat, how we live, and how we respect our natural or domestic environments. The world needs thoughtful advocates for animals in agriculture, policy, law and wildlife conservation. Animal Conservation & Care is a growing field emerging in response to human impact on wild and domestic animals. The major serves students who want to ensure that we have a positive influence on animal populations and individuals. Students are free to choose their own path focusing on wild populations, livestock or domestic animals. Increased interest in this major reflects a rising concern about human-wildlife conflicts, animal use, and animal welfare. Through exploration of animal interactions, along with the influences that humans and nonhuman animals exert on each other’s lives, this interdisciplinary program serves students with exposure to different perspectives, including sustainable agriculture, captive animal care, philosophy, biology, natural resource management, policy, and law. The major is offered as either a Bachelor of Science degree (for those interested in applied science occupations like wildlife management or veterinary care) or a Bachelor of Arts degree (for students interested in a range of careers, from domestic animal welfare to wildlife conservation. Green Mountain College has many local resources that support the study of animals. For the study of domestic animals, this includes our 22-acre Cerridwen Farm right on campus as well as the local farming communities in both Vermont and New York, including local dairies and horseback riding facilities. For the study of wild populations, resources include field opportunities on campus along the river, at the Dean Preserve and the local Lake Champlain and Hudson River watersheds.

Environmental Studies: Conservation Science and Policy
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Brown University in Providence, RI
Many of the most pressing challenges of the 21st Century are environmental ones. We must find ways to feed a growing human population while maintaining the natural life support system provided by the Earth's ecosystems; to make built environments more efficient as urban areas continue to grow dramatically in size; and to meet the challenges posed by rising sea-level and increasing global temperatures. These challenges are complex, multifaceted and can best be solved with expertise from multiple, relevant disciplines.

Biology
Bachelor of Science (BS)
Saint Michael's College in Colchester, VT
In your first semester of General Biology, you'll explore topics in ecology and evolution through the study of local biodiversity. You'll be designing and executing a semester-long research project focusing on the conservation of a local threatened ecosystem, the sandplain forest, as well. As they move farther along in the major, students will then have the ability to widen the range of their fieldwork while focusing more closely on particular subjects and issues that interest them. Those interested in Tropical Ecology, for example, might travel to Costa Rica to study the biodiversity of rainforests. We offer courses and research opportunities in a range of biological fields, including molecular biology, genetics, neurobiology, animal behavior, physiology, development biology, and ecology. Experience matters at Saint Michael's. As a biology major, you'll spend plenty of time in the lab, but for starters you might also: Intern with the Vermont State Medical Examiner's Office or the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Conduct and present professional-level research on aquatic biology, or genetics and evolution, to name just a few subjects Prepare for graduate schools in areas such as medicine, dentistry, other healthcare professions, and M.S. or Ph.D. programs in a variety of other fields of biology At Saint Michael's, you can study Pre-Health, Conservation Biology, Cellular and Molecular Biology, or Biology Education. You can also create your own selection of biology courses. Being a biology major at Saint Michael's is big step toward a rewarding science career. Our grads work in the fields of genetics and molecular biology, biological and chemical research labs, environmental consulting and conservation, and pharmaceutical labs.

Environmental Studies
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Saint Michael's College in Colchester, VT
As an environmental studies major at Saint Michael's, you will investigate important domestic and global environmental problems and learn how to help create a more sustainable world. You will get outside the classroom for engaged learning that reflects the social justice mission of the college through internships, study abroad, community projects, and collaborative research with faculty. You can also participate in sustainability and environmental justice projects on campus such as recycling and energy efficiency, working in the organic garden, and activism through environmentally-conscious clubs such as Green Up, Food for Thought, the Fair Trade Committee and the Divestment Campaign. As an environmental studies major you will enroll in an interdisciplinary core of courses team-taught by faculty from the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. Building on this core, you can then choose from three tracks for the major: Environmental Imagination is for students interested in exploring how different intellectual and creative traditions have imagined nature in the past and how they continue to inspire new perspectives on the relationship between human beings and the natural world in the present and for the future. Environmental Justice and Sustainability is focused upon the social science of decision-making around some of the most important global challenges of our time: climate change, the potential of fair trade, and of domestic and international initiatives to protect the environment. Environmental Science and Policy gives students a deeper understanding of the ways in which scientific knowledge and discovery is used to form environmental policy. The sophomore-level Environmental Research Methods course will take you into the field in Vermont urban and rural communities, as well as natural environments, to focus on specific skills in the social and natural sciences that relate to environmental problems. In Environmental Studies Practicum you will apply those skills in the world outside the classroom. In Senior Seminar you will complete a capstone research project. There are a number of courses in other departments which can count towards Environmental Studies requirements, such as Environmental Economics, Global Environmental Politics, and Human Behavior and the Environment. Your faculty advisor will work with you to develop a curriculum plan that matches your interests and career goals. At Saint Michael's environmental studies students are involved in partnerships with local and international non-governmental organizations, businesses and government agencies so you'll have many opportunities to make a positive contribution to environmental change while acquiring skills needed for work or graduate study. Environmental studies majors are very active in the college's student research programs. Funding is available for students to conduct summer research projects working with faculty. The number and kinds of careers in the environmental field are growing rapidly. Many organizations, including for-profit corporations and non-profit institutions, now have a sustainability office with at least one staff member taking the lead on environmental efforts. The fully interdisciplinary nature of our program prepares graduates well to work with a variety of constituencies within organizations on environmental initiatives since the skills required for that work go beyond scientific understanding of environmental problems. Graduates of our Environmental Studies program are well prepared to pursue careers in the fields of environmental conservation, environmental management, environmental education, and green business. The program also prepare students for post-graduate study in environmental law, green M.B.A., environmental sustainability, environmental studies, ethics, conservation, management and policy programs. Saint Michael's has an articulation agreement with the Vermont Law School that guarantees admission to the J.D. program or the Masters of Environmental Law and Policy program for qualified Saint Michael's College graduates.
