How to Apply

Initial Contact:

Students interested in applying to the M.S. or Ph.D. programs in Zoology should review the eligibility requirements, then check the department's list of research areas and associated faculty. It is critical to identify potential advisors with research interests similar to the student's. We strongly recommend that students make direct contact with potential advisors prior to initiating an application.

Appropriate items for discussion include whether the faculty member is accepting new students, whether the advisor is a good match for the student's interests, and whether research funding is available. Contact the Zoology Graduate Secretary with questions about application procedures, and the Director of Graduate Studies in Zoology with questions about academics.

Students interested in apply to the P.S.M. in Wildlife Administration and Management should review the eligibility requirements, then contact Dr. Mike Eichholz (Program Director) or apply here.
