Faculty

The M.S. in Ecology and Sustainability is a multidisciplinary program that draws upon biology and other natural sciences, economics, policy, management, and other disciplines. All members of the Department of Biological Sciences are considered to be potential instructors and thesis advisors in the program. Thesis committees are required to have at least two faculty members from the Department of Biological Sciences. A third member of the thesis committee can come from any department on campus. University faculty who frequently teach courses and advise graduate students include:
