Just like any ecosystem, great careers grow when all the elements are carefully combined and nurtured. Start with six semesters of undergraduate study at Xavier followed by four semesters of study at Duke University. It's from this world-class blending of ethics, experience and expertise that your career as an environmental leader will flourish.
Earn a Master of Forestry (MF) or Master of Environmental Management (MEM).
Work directly with professors on topics like paleobiology (extinct mammals), ecology, bird behavior, manatee behavior, cardiology (hearts), entomology (bugs) and genetics.
Take your pick of fascinating labs: bacteriology (make cheese), ecology (go outside), genetics (it glows), human cadaver (for upper-level students only).
Don't be surprised when your professor announces a field trip to the Cincinnati Zoo, the Newport Aquarium, the Krohn Conservatory or the Cincinnati Museum of Natural History & Science.

She never expected how emotionally impactful it would be for her when, after several tries, she was able to help an old man, partially blind since birth, find just the right pair.
