About the Program

Our graduate program is first and foremost about students. The program is designed for students with widely diverse academic and research experiences.

Students represent a range of experiences, with varied backgrounds from biology, chemistry, zoology, entomology, meteorology, ecology, and botany programs to name a few. You will find an exceptional faculty that offer an unequaled range of research expertise and breadth within our focus areas.

The strength of our research resides in three main program themes: Chemical Ecology, Ecological Applications, and Disease Biology and Ecology.

Many opportunities are available for study abroad experiences. Graduate students return with a new perspective that enhances their studies and research.
