Department of Ecology
Ecological knowledge is critical to conserve and manage individual species, fundamental interactions between species, and the ecosystems and landscapes that sustain them. We study fish, birds, mammals, plants, insects, and other taxa of ecological, cultural and economic importance to the state, the nation, and the world. Through wide-reaching research, outstanding teaching, and community engagement, students and faculty in the Department of Ecology seek to understand and address fundamental and applied ecological questions and problems in Montana and across the globe.
The Department of Ecology offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences with four options: Biology Teaching, Conservation Biology & Ecology, Fish & Wildlife Ecology & Management, and Organismal Biology. Graduate degrees include a Masters or PhD in Biological Sciences, Masters in Fish & Wildlife Management, PhD in Fish & Wildlife Biology, and an inter-college PhD in Ecology and Environmental Sciences.
