Bachelor of Science in Environmental Biology at Liberty University  will prepare you for graduate school, help you to secure industry or government jobs, or become a high school biology teacher.

Our freshman and sophomore science courses are designed to give you a broad background in biology, earth science, chemistry, and physics. Our upper-level courses build on this base of knowledge as you engage in many “hands-on” experiences during our field labs. For example, you will conduct in-stream impact assessments using electrofishing equipment, use elastomer to mark newts to estimate their population size using mark-recapture methods, map out movement patterns of animals using telemetry, geographical information system software, and global positioning system technology.

Upper-level students also engage in team-based research projects directed by our professors including ecophysiological boundaries of the Peaks of Otter salamander, a species of salamander unique to central Virginia, migration dynamics of the Saw-whet owl in the Piedmont, or box turtle urban ecology.
