Ethnobotany Degree Program

  • The Bachelors of Science in Ethnobotany is one of a few undergraduate programs in the United States.  Students can major or minor in the relationships between peoples and plants.

  • The  interdisciplinary major allows students to integrate science and culture as a way of understanding human reliance on plants and the environment.

  • The Master of Science in Applied Ecology & Conservation Biology program within the Biology Department is a graduate program for students interested in conservation of ethnobotanically significant plants.

  • This program is part of the Open Science Network in Ethnobiology, an NSF-funded project for ethnobiology education and integrates AAAS Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education and the Vision & Change for Undergraduate Ethnobiology Education.

  • The program is integrated in the Society for Economic Botany (SEB)--the leading international scientific organization in ethnobiology. Dr. Brosi is the President-Elect (2017) of this society.

  • Our program consists of courses which cover the Core Concepts and Competencies outlined in Vision & Change in Undergraduate Biology Education and Core Concepts and Technical Skills outlined in the Vision and Change in Undergraduate Ethnobiology Education.  Core courses meet these standards through pre- and post-testing of achievement on specific learning
    objectives.

  • Our program collaborates with the Ethnobotany Certificate Progam part of the University of Alaska Fairbanks Kuskokwim Campus, Bethel, Alaska. Watch a Video about the Alaska program.
