Description
Fully-funded Masters Opportunities in Behavioral Ecology and Conservation at William & Mary John Swaddle in the Biology Department and Faculty Director of the Institute for Integrative Conservation at William & Mary is recruiting new research Masters students in areas of behavioral ecology and applied conservation science, to start in Fall 2021. The Biology Department offer a two-year research-intensive Masters program where students are supported by teaching assistantships and full tuition waivers. For many students, getting paid to complete a Masters in two years and writing publications and grants before applying to highly competitive Ph.D. programs or getting jobs is a very attractive option. We have a great track record of recent MS students going on to excellent PhD programs and professional positions. In particular, working in collaboration with the Institute for Integrative Conservation will allow students to complete collaborative projects with international conservation NGOs and other governmental and private sector partners, opening up career opportunities. Admissions are rolling with application review beginning Dec. 1st. We do NOT require the GRE in this application cycle.
