Evolutionary Ecology Master's Program

Required Coursework

The master's program at the University of Utah is structured specifically to give students the flexability they need to grow into their specific areas of interest.

Proseminar Series (Anthropology 6100, 6200, 6300, 6400), to be taken in the first year (students who have previously taken 6161 are exempt).

Statistics. All graduate students are expected to have basic proficiency in statistics. Most graduate students will be expected to gain additional statistical expertise, as determined by the student's supervisory committee.

Program-specific requirements: In addition to the department-wide courses above, masters students are required to take the following human ecology specific courses. Courses in addition to these may be required by a student's supervisory committee.
