School: McGill University
Faculty: Faculty of Science
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Ecology
Description: Ecology is the study of the interactions between organisms and environment that affect distribution, abundance, and other characteristics of the organisms.

A strong analytical and quantitative orientation is common to all areas of ecology, and thus students wishing to specialize in these areas are strongly encouraged to develop their background in statistical analysis, computing, and mathematical modeling (eg. BIOL 373, COMP 202). Many of our ecology courses feature a strong analytical component, and students will find that background preparation in this area is very useful, if not essential. Ecology depends heavily on field courses, which should be considered as vital to all concentrations in this area.
