The Biology Program leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees is offered by the Department of Earth and Biological Sciences. M.S. and Ph.D. curricula provide a broad and unified approach to the life sciences, as well as specialization—as evidenced by the conduct of significant, original research; and in the selection of courses related to the area of research interest. Study in various areas, from molecular biology to natural history, is available to the student seeking preparation for teaching or for research in modern biology. Some areas of specialization are animal behavior, animal physiology, molecular systematics, ecological physiology, behavioral ecology, conservation biology, marine biology, and paleontology.
