The department offers graduate work in the following areas: Ecology; Behavior; Fisheries Biology; Wildlife Biology; Genetics; Cell Biology and Neurobiology; Morphology; Physiology; Systematics and Molecular Biology. A reputation for excellence in the area of “Ecology of the Northern Great Plains” has been developed, and the Ph.D. program has been designated by the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) as a Western Regional Graduate Program because of its uniqueness and strength. It is, therefore, open to residents of the 13 western states at resident tuition rates.
