Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
The EBIO graduate program provides advanced training in a wide variety of biological disciplines ranging from Biogeochemistry to Community Ecology to Evolutionary Genetics. The goal of the EBIO graduate program is to produce scientists, educators, and citizens who are equipped with skills to build careers that advance knowledge about life on Earth. Graduates of the EBIO program are well-positioned to pursue a wide range of careers that include academia, science education, wildlife biology, conservation biology, resource management, environmental consulting, and environmental law.
A master’s degree with thesis is offered for students interested in continuing their training as professional biologists. For some students the MA I provides a basis for work on a PhD at the University of Colorado or at another institution, although the MA is not required for admission to the PhD program.
A non-thesis master’s degree program is offered for students who are interested in obtaining a greater knowledge of ecology and evolutionary biology but who are not interested in degree work beyond the MA. This program is suitable for secondary school teachers and others whose career choices do not require a research thesis. Financial support is not guaranteed for MA II students.
