Information for Graduate Students



Degree Programs

FSU offers two graduate-level programs in the Biological Sciences.

  • Master of Science in Applied Ecology & Conservation Biology
  • The Master of Science in Applied Ecology & Conservation Biology program enables students to gain scientific training in addressing conservation issues, especially those pertaining to the persistence of native populations and communities in a changing environment, landscape fragmentation, conservation/development conflicts, watershed assessment and integrated resource management. The program addresses both domestic and international issues, since the need of professionals is broad-based and global.  Frostburg State University has interinstitutional agreements and with universities and national agencies in African and Central American countries that facilitate the international dimensions of this program.  
  • Master of Science in Wildlife/Fisheries Biology
  • The Wildlife/Fisheries Biology program is designed to prepare you for research and management positions within the public and private sectors.  The program allows flexibility, yet offers courses necessary for certification as a biologist with professional organizations such as The Wildlife Society and the American Fisheries Society

Please see the Graduate Catalog for details.
