All About People

Our biodiversity program focuses on human action.

Engaging in conservation is not just about the science behind it; it’s about the humanity, too. That’s why our program goes beyond scientific knowledge and emphasizes the importance of the human dimension of environmental work. You’ll learn concepts and develop skills in policy implementation, conservation ecology, data analytics and visualization, spatial mapping, emerging conservation concepts and technologies, community engagement and conservation research and monitoring.

Our program is one of the only master’s degrees in conservation across the country—and of those, even fewer are fully online.

Leading the Charge

Throughout our history, UW-Green Bay has prioritized sustainability and conservation efforts.

In fact, Harper’s Magazine and Newsweek dubbed us the Eco U® in the early 1970s. Our Cofrin Center for Biodiversity promotes conservation through education, research, land stewardship and community services. Our resources are made for online students, too, with resources throughout our website to help give you experience and build skills. At the end of your degree, the capstone experience will provide you with an opportunity to apply your knowledge and expertise to real-world situations and make a positive impact on society.
