Students in the Ecology and Environmental Sciences program of The University of Maine represent the next generation of scholars and leaders in ecology, environmental science, environmental policy, and natural resource management. As such, we provide our students with support in developing their scientific knowledge and ability to contribute to environmental policies necessary to promote the sustainability of our natural environment, human communities, and resource-based economies.
The thesis-based masters program in EES is designed to provide students with the background necessary to conduct or to evaluate research. Students who might want to continue for a Ph.D. should pursue the thesis option. Graduate research and teaching assistantships may be available to students accepted for the thesis option.

- EES typically admits students with a GPA greater than 3.0 during their undergraduate career.

- The personal statement, resume, and letters of recommendation are also important, and will weigh heavily in admission decisions for students not meeting the recommended GPA and GRE benchmarks.
