Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology
College or University: University of California, Santa Barbara
Type of degree: M.A.
Brief overview of program: The Department of Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology at the University of California, Santa Barbara provides broad, interdisciplinary training leading to the Master of Arts and the Doctor of Philosophy degrees with an emphasis on ecology and evolution as broadly defined. The diversity of research interests, perspectives, and expertise within the Department promotes the development of a broad foundation in ecology and evolution and appreciation for interdisciplinary approaches to education and research, while also allowing students to develop depth in specific subdisciplines, including population and community ecology, ecosystems ecology and biological oceanography, ecological physiology, evolution, population genetics, and organismal biology. Faculty in the Department are strong in both field and laboratory-based approaches and most combine both in their research programs.
