SOLS: Conservation Biology

College: 
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
Campus: 
Tempe

The overarching expectations for Barrett, The Honors College students majoring in Conservation Biology and Ecological Sustainability – particularly the protocol and timetable for conducting honors research – are outlined on the web-page for all Biological Science degrees in SOLS. Specifically, however, CBES students should feel free to engage in any nature of life science research for their honors project, simply because of the incredible breadth of disciplines encompassed within the field of conservation biology. In turn, we have many SOLS honors students who are not CBES majors who choose to conduct a conservation-related honors project. Students are encouraged to follow their heart and interests when choosing a project and a faculty member with whom to work.

"Policy colors our interactions and codifies our ethical values with a complexity that demands constant inquiry; inquiry I find infinitely rewarding and relevant. By studying its influence in a developing country, I saw exactly how pronounced an effect policy may have on a people and their environment. Policy colors our interactions and codifies our ethical values with a complexity that demands constant inquiry; inquiry I find infinitely rewarding and relevant. It was in the process of untangling the effects of environmental policy in the real world that I developed an emotional connection both to the landscape my ancestors called home and to the people who inhabit it today."
