Thinking of an Ecology minor?
Students interested in an Ecology Minor should contact the Program Chair. An application form used by the Program Chair to notify the Graduate School of a student's intent to declare a minor is available from the Program Office.
Six credits are required for an MS Minor. All 6 credits must be met by selecting one course from two of the three Core Areas. See the list of required courses.
15 credits are required for a PhD Minor in Ecology. A PhD student must take one course from each of the three Core Areas; the additional credits should be ecologically-oriented courses and are selected in consultation with the Chair of the Ecology Program. See the list of required courses.
Coursework for a minor is in addition to coursework for a major: you cannot select courses in your major as courses to fulfill the minor requirements. For example, a student whose major is Wildlife and Fisheries Science and who wishes to minor in Ecology cannot use Wildlife and Fisheries Science courses for the Ecology minor.
