EEB at KU is one of the nation's top graduate programs. We offer Master of Arts (M. A.) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees in three disciplines:

  • Ecology and Evolutionary Biology,
  • Entomology 
  • Botany
An M.A. from EEB can be obtained using one of two tracks:
  • the thesis option is a research-oriented degree which requires a written thesis presenting the research.
  • the nonthesis option emphasizes broader graduate training without a concentration on research.

See our information for prospective students page for more information.
