Graduate Programs:

This page is intended for students interested in pursuing graduate studies in the Department of Natural Resource Sciences (NRS). Our NRS department offers research-based graduate programs leading to Master of Science (M.Sc.) and Doctorate (Ph.D.) degrees.

In several of these areas of research, we offer Program Options in cooperation with the McGill School of Environment and with the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (Neotropical Environment). These options typically involve extra course work at the graduate level.

Information for current NRS graduate students can be found on the Graduate Student Information page.
