Master of Science in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

The Master of Science in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology thesis program, administered by the Texas A&M Interdepartmental Program in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, involves introduction to laboratory or field-conducted research, coupled with advanced coursework directed towards ecological, evolutionary, and genetic/genomic principles. Students that complete the course of study will have practical exposure to experimental techniques that address a broad range of questions involving living systems, communities, and evolutionary processes. These methodologies include a range of statistical, biomolecular, genetic/genomic, theoretical and experimental ecological techniques used for dissecting, describing, cataloging and organizing data from diverse ecological and evolutionary systems. The students will also have developed writing and oral skills to effectively communicate new discoveries to fellow scientists and to the general public.
