The Department of Integrative Biology is comprised of faculty members in three overlapping fields of emphasis: Ecology, Evolutionary Biology and Comparative Physiology. Research is focused on a wide variety of organisms (from microbes to plants to animals) at multiple levels of organization (from molecules and cells through to entire ecosystems). Basic research is being used as a foundation to address some of the most important regional and global issues.

We offer a research-based Master’s and Doctoral program. Master’s students take 1.5 credits in course work, and prepare and defend a research-based thesis for their MSc (approximately six semesters). The PhD program requires the successful completion of a qualifying exam and the completion and defense of a research-based thesis. All graduate students are guaranteed financial support through Research and/ or Teaching Assistantships and internal/ external scholarships.
