The Conservation and Restoration Science program of the University of Washington Bothell prepares students to address real world issues. Conservation & Restoration Science students develop the depth of scientific understanding, interdisciplinary perspectives, and creative problem-solving skills needed to design and bring about solutions  to these problems at local, regional, and global scales.

Visit the official programme website for more information


Through community-based projects ranging from wetlands restoration and conservation planning to analyses of regional air and water pollution, students gain practical experience and make a positive difference while they are still in school. Past students in conservation and restoration have gone on to graduate school and work in government agencies, consulting firms and nonprofits.

CRS Learning Objectives

The Conservation and Restoration Science program of the University of Washington Bothell  is designed to provide curriculum and co-curricular opportunities that will specifically enable graduates to:

Engage in Conservation and Restoration Science

  • Apply scientific understanding to the concepts of biological diversity, sustainability, ecological integrity and the socio-political systems with which they interact.
  • Recognize the important roles of indigenous knowledge and values in understanding and managing natural systems.
  • Acquire first-hand knowledge of regional ecosystems and the human communities dependent on them to enable meaningful engagement in local conservation and restoration activities.
  • Collect and analyze environmental data to address questions and assess impacts, identify management options, and identify new research directions.
  • Critically evaluate alternative responses to environmental problems, such as habitat change, biodiversity loss, and climate change, and advance solutions that enhance resilience, equity and sustainability.
  • Prepare for careers in conservation and restoration in academic, governmental, non-profit, and private sectors.
  • Learn data collection methods and technologies, such as field ecology methods, geo-technologies such as GIS and remote sensing, and ecosystem modeling for research projects, investigations, and surveys.
  • Understand the philosophical and scientific underpinnings of conservation and restoration science, including its strengths, limitations, and assumptions.

Promote equity and inclusion

  • Critically reflect on the social drivers of environmental problems and environmental inequity.
  • Build environmental consciousness and promote ethical human intervention for environmental and human sustainability.
  • Apply an understanding of ethics, power, and intergenerational equity in conservation and restoration decision-making.

Communicate and collaborate with others

  • Use both written and oral communication to effectively communicate the issues, questions, findings, and body of knowledge of conservation and restoration science to peers and the public, and to produce effective visual representations of data that articulate knowledge of conservation and restoration science.
  • Constructively work with others in partnership and shared leadership to achieve project goals.
  • Interact and communicate with others in disciplines outside of conservation and restoration science and beyond academia to produce new knowledge and understanding needed to address the interdisciplinary and multi-dimensional environmental issues of the future.
