The Environment

UW Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences
Do you want to study the environment? You might have to get a little dirty! You might have to dig in the soil, wade in creeks, or walk a pasture. Where else would you go to learn about wild species and their habitats? You can focus on any area that suits you: forest ecology, wildlife ecology, entomology, and soil science are just a few of the majors. In fact, almost every department in the college deals with natural resources in some form. And it’s not all fieldwork. Some of our best natural resource work delves into basic biology, plant and animal physiology, public policy and business.

Students in our college can explore their interests, get a solid education and put the two together in a satisfying and incredibly interesting career.
