Graduates of the Natural Resources – Conservation Biology Emphasis program from University of Arizona will be equipped to pursue careers in education, law, policy, and other non-scientific approaches to conservation,. Most will have the knowledge, skills, and experiences for careers as conservation biologists, conservation planners, ecologists, environmental educators, researchers, or resource managers, and could become qualified for Civil Service positions under the titles Ecologist, Fish and Wildlife Biologists, and Botanist with suitable course selection.
All programs in the School of Natural Resources and the Environment emphasize applications of ecological principles for conservation and management of plant, animal, and water resources at local and global scales, and solutions to negative impacts of human activity. Students complete courses that provide a foundation in natural resource science, conservation, and management, and elective courses that allow students to explore areas of interest.

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”
