The Department of Earth and Biological Sciences (EBS) offers both MS and PhD degrees in the biological sciences. Our areas of emphasis are on wildlife biology, ecology and conservation biology, with research covering a wide range of topics, from ecological physiology, and venom expenditure, to marine invertebrates, ornithology, and sea turtle biology and conservation. Students and faculty of the program consistently publish their research findings in international, peer-review research journals, and present their research at scientific meetings around the world.
