M.S. in Biological Sciences
The M.S. in Biological Sciences covers a broad array of ecological topics and serves the needs of students whose thesis research addresses basic, fundamental ecological principles or of those conducting applied research not involving fish or wildlife management. It may be a terminal degree leading to professional employment as an ecologist, but may also lead to a Ph.D. in Biological Sciences or other discipline. Coursework associated with this degree tends to emphasize fundamental principles of ecology.
The student's graduate committee will work with the student following a required oral qualifying exam during the second semester in attendance to finalize the following required plan of study. The committee may require additional electives for completing a Master's degree in the Department of Ecology. Statistics courses may be recommended as electives.
