The QERM program offers two graduate degrees: Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy. Each degree requires the preparation of a either thesis or dissertation, respectively.
In the first year, M.S. and Ph.D. students take the same core coursework. Under the guidance of their first-year advisors and the QERM director, students identify their research advisor and second-year funding source. During the second year, students form their supervisory committees, prepare their thesis/dissertation proposals, and make progress on their thesis/dissertations. Students take electives to further their understanding in an area of emphasis (statistics, mathematical modeling, or resource management) and to gain greater insight into the environmental systems in which they expect to apply their quantitative training.
About the degree
The completion of a Quantitative Ecology and Management degree from University of Washington is normally required before a student may enter the Ph.D. program. Occasionally, students initially accepted into the master’s program will be allowed to proceed directly to the doctoral program as detailed in the Master’s Degree By-Pass policy.
M.S. and Ph.D. students are funded with a combination of research assistantships, teaching assistantships, and fellowships throughout their time in the program.
