School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences
The School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences (SAFS) offers two graduate degree programs:
- Master of Science in Aquatic and Fishery Sciences
- Doctor of Philosophy in Aquatic and Fishery Sciences
At the SAFS, you will graduate employment-ready with the skills to advance the discipline of fisheries and aquatic sciences. You will learn to develop, articulate and implement novel research that addresses relevant questions or issues in a selected discipline; communicate science effectively to peers and integrate knowledge across disciplines; and gain leadership skills by mentoring, advising, and instructing junior colleagues.
The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree program requires preparation of a research proposal, the passage of a qualifying examination and general examination, completion of the dissertation research, and presentation of the research at a final examination. A minimum of two years of residence at the UW is also required. Students interested in a Ph.D. degree should contact individual faculty members to request information on current research and graduate opportunities.
