Vs. National Avg.
Conservation biology is the 348th most popular degree in America, with 211 students receiving their bachelors degree last year.
The degree is offered at a total of 26 colleges across the nation, and is the 357th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 1% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.
It is also worth noting that 47% of colleges offering conservation biology are public making it a pretty accessible field.
The mid east produces the most conservation biology graduates, largely led by St Lawrence University, while it’s the Big Ten Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, New York ranks highest, with particular help from St Lawrence University and SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry.
All that being said, no individual school produces more conservation biology graduates than University of West Alabama, which graduated 57 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study conservation biology). More students studied conservation biology as a percentage of total students at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry than any other college.
