What programs intersect with ecology, marine biology, neuroscience, and public health?

Hi! I'm researching graduate programs and am looking to focus on ecology, neuroscience, and public health. I would love, for example, to study the brain of a specific animal and translate the findings into implications for public health and climate change. My bachelor's is in public health and I'm very interested in merging ecological sciences in the near future. If anyone has any leads as to where this intersection may lie, I would love to hear about it!

How do I go about starting a career in ecology and conservation ?

How do I go about starting a career in ecology and conservation? I’ve worked in healthcare for 14 years and need to be out asap. I love science and want to have meaningful work just need to be away from healthcare. It’s hard to see that there is little care in healthcare, mainly just capitalism. I am hoping for a departure from that by going into ecology and conservation work. I’m just not sure where to start.

I want to be an LCSW what do I need to do?

I am a senior in college studying psychology to become a LCSW. I do not have any internships, and my GPA IS 2.6. I am trying to bring that up as close to 3.0 as possible before I graduate next semester. Is there anything else I should have to bolster my application? I also am in a service organization and work with underserved populations and. I have a brother with severe intellectual disability, so I have experience around people with challenges. I am considering taking a fieldwork class next semester to get more experience with developmentally challenged individuals.

If I have a BS in Psychology, will I be accepted for a MS in Ecology ?

I am a US citizen living in Australia, I have been out of school for 2 1/2 years, and I would like to go back to school to earn a masters in Ecology or a related field. I would like to know if this is possible in the USA, but I want to go to school in Central Europe. Would a foreign school in Austria or Germany accept me for an ecology program if my Bachelor's is in a different scientific field. #science #graduate-school #ecology #study-abroad #Austria #Germany #environmental-science #masters #Europe

How to propose to professor ready for research?

Next semester I am transferring to a new school as a junior. After e-mailing two professors about an independent research class, one e-mailed back mentioning that while I have a lot of research experience, students in their first semester are not normally approved to do independent research and I should contact the other teacher about it. If the other teacher says similar, what would be a good response in hopes to persuade them? My first e-mail listed previous experience and what topics interest me for research and what skills I hope to gain. I thought it may be beneficial to provide the teacher's contact information that previous research was conducted under since she knows what I am capable of and has seen how hard I work. My first semester will also be an easier semester since I am taking two ecology classes (one with lab) that cover some of the same material (both prerequisites for diff. classes I hope to take), plus an Intro to Biology 2 class taken already covered many different ecology topics. Two other classes will be taken that have no lab component and are intro classes. Should I include the information that the semester would not be too demanding with other classes which would make it beneficial to include the research class? What other information should I include? #ecology #conservation #college #research

Wildlife Biology or Wildlife Biology with a concentration in Wildlife Rehabilitation?

Next year, I will be transferring to a school and pursuing a Wildlife Biology Bachelor's degree. Originally, the Wildlife Biology degree with a concentration in Wildlife Rehabilitation interested me because I thought the rehabilitation concentration would provide increased skills. My career goal is wildlife conservation/research. The concentration requires specific classes that focus on wildlife education (public presentations) and rehabilitation skills. Would the concentration take away or add to my competitiveness for wildlife conservation? The concentration does require a clinical at the rehabilitation center and originally I saw it as a way to increase my animal handling skills that would provide animal handling experience for future wildlife monitoring/research work. My other electives classes will be focusing on ecology and field classes. #ecology #conservation #biology #veterinary

What jobs are available for a biology major?

I have always loved studying biology in school. I have actually taken all of the science courses offered to my school i love science so much. Upon speaking to the schools guidance counselor, I found that i truly wanted to major in biology. What jobs would be achievable with a #biology major? I always dreamed of working with animals, but not testing on them. I would love to become a veterinarian but there is a lot of schooling involved there, and i feel as if i would get lost along the way. The specific major I was looking into was Biology with Ecology Concentration, but i have no idea what i would be able to manage with this. #wildlife-biology #ecology

For those interested in pursuing a career in ecology and evolutionary biology, what types of jobs are available that involve working in the field with real organisms?

I have always been very interested in biology and animals, so when I discovered the ecology and evolutionary biology major at most prestigious schools, I thought it would be perfect! However, I know that I am a very hands on learner who would prefer to be out in the environment as opposed to at a desk, so I was wondering what types of jobs would allow me to do this. #biology #animals #environment #ecology #environmental-services #evolutionary-biology #field-work #animalscience
