Graduate Education

Ecology graduate students may pursue either a MS or PhD in Biology and have opportunities to conduct their research through the LCC – Biological Field Station. Our course offerings are designed to ensure students have a solid education in ecological sciences while providing the opportunity for specialization in their chosen area. Research projects are an integral part of that training, and we provide excellent facilities and a broadly-based faculty to support many areas in ecology.

There are also opportunities to enroll in courses in cell and molecular biology in the Biological Sciences department, especially if the student wishes to learn molecular techniques and apply them to an ecological question.
