Graduate Study. The Graduate Group in Animal Biology offers programs of study and research leading to the M.S. and the Ph.D. degrees. The Animal Biology Graduate Group focuses on integrated animal biology. Each student individually tailors his/her program of study to meet individual needs. The Animal Biology Graduate Group is unique in encouraging a multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary approach involving physiology, nutrition, genetics, ecology and/or behavior within the context of organismal animal biology.
Preparation. Applicants should have undergraduate preparation in a field appropriate to the course of study selected, including upper division coursework in most of the following subjects: biochemistry, genetics, nutrition, physiology, and integrative animal biology such as animal management.
