A Ph.D. completed in association with a faculty sponsor from the EEB department. Students with a bachelor’s degree and strong preparation may be admitted directly to the Ph.D. program. Full financial support (including a graduate assistantship, tuition waiver, partial fee waiver and option to purchase highly subsidized health insurance) is generally provided for five years. Students in this degree program conduct research throughout the world, and have gone on to careers in academia, museums, and the conservation community.
Application deadline: December 15, for admission for the following fall semester. Applications are generally considered only once a year; late applications may be considered on a space-available basis, but applicants are strongly encouraged to apply by the deadline. The department does not normally consider applications for entry in the spring semester. More information about how to apply is available here.
