A wide variety of positions requiring the application of ecological principles are available, though the title might not include "ecologist." Some of these job titles include: consultant, planner, analyst, program manager, education coordinator, computer programmer, lobbyist and lawyer.

Most professional positions in ecology and fish and wildlife require an M.S. or Ph.D. The undergraduate program at MSU is designed to prepare students for graduate study, while allowing the flexibility to develop an area of specialization, or to study a broad range of disciplines related to ecology.
