Susquehanna University’s ecology program combines strengths from the Department of Biology and the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences to create a cooperative, interdisciplinary program.
Ecology students study organisms in their home along with their interconnections in nature. Students studying under the Ecology Program will gain hands-on experience by covering a wide range of topics and applying education to natural resources located in the Susquehanna Valley.
Rivers, Streams and Creeks as Labs
Students and faculty with the Ecology Program research the water quality of the Susquehanna River and its tributaries. Research is done in collaboration with other members of a regional education consortium known as the “The River Group.”
