BS-MS Five-Year Degree Program

Students who are interested in the five-year BS-MS program in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology should notify the Graduate Coordinator no later than the Spring Semester of their sophomore year. At that time, interested students need to begin to identify a faculty advisor who has projects and funding and interests similar to the student's. Once the faculty advisor has been identified, the student must file form GS6BSMS (see link below), apply for admission to the Graduate School, and submit financial aid forms, GRE scores, and two letters of recommendation. The student will receive conditional admission, pending successful completion of the undergraduate degree, during which up to 12 credits of graduate coursework replace BS requirements. During the summer following the junior year, the student should complete a field season of research. No graduate research credits will be earned, but the data will be used for the MS thesis. The student completes the BS degree in May of the senior year. After graduation with the BS, the student registers for 3 credits of WFB 891 during each summer session, is given an assistantship, and completes a second field season of research. The student and the major professor select a graduate advisory committee for the student at the beginning of the Fall Semester of the post-BS year. The advisory committee approves the student's plan of study and research prospectus early in the Fall Semester. The final graduate courses and the thesis defense are completed during the Spring Semester. The complete BS/MS process takes 5 years.

The GS-2 is not submitted until the BS has been completed.
