Graduate Program Options

Because of our location and the surrounding physical environment, Humboldt State University has established a reputation for excellence in graduate programs in Biological, Environmental and Natural Resources Sciences.

These programs, which include nine options, are designed to provide students with the knowledge and experience necessary to address scientific problems and to carry out scientific investigations including design, implementation, and evaluation of research in their specific area of study.

While the College of Natural Resources and Sciences graduate programs are designed to provide an in-depth understanding of your particular area of emphasis, they are also intended to develop an appreciation for the interdisciplinary character of biological, environmental and natural resource problems. Each candidate for the degree is required to consult with an appropriate faculty committee and to prepare an individualized program of study which must be approved by that committee.
