Environmental Biology Track

The Environmental Biology Track is designed for students with environmental and/or conservation interests. Our students receive broad-based training in plant and animal identification, natural history, population ecology, conservation, and policy issues that affect natural resources. Course offerings allow students to pursue interests in a diversity of fields, which include:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Environmental Science
  • Wetlands Biology
  • Limnology
  • Marine Biology
  • Animal Behavior
  • Invertebrate Biology
  • Vertebrate Natural History
  • Wildlife and Fisheries Biology

Coursework is linked with laboratory and field research. Located in the coastal plain of northeastern North Carolina, our rural setting makes Chowan University (CU) an ideal place for environmental study. Pristine bottomland hardwood forests, cypress swamps and blackwater rivers are minutes away from the CU campus. Nearby federal and state lands, provide our students with opportunities to study in a variety of marine, freshwater, and terrestrial habitats. These public lands include:

  • The Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge
  • Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge
  • Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge
  • Cape Hatteras National Seashore
  • The North Carolina Coastal Reserve and National Estuarine
    Research Reserve System
  • Merchants Mill Pond State Park
