International Activities

The Interdisciplinary Ecology degree program attracts outstanding international graduate students, because the curriculum is integrative and the faculty are highly reputed in international research.

It is a goal of the School to recruit such students, by arranging suitable faculty advisors and, if needed, allocating funds or matching external funds.

The major research interests of IE students (resource ecology and management, linked social-ecological systems, community and institutional management of natural resources, sustainable livelihood systems) are particularly important in developing countries of Latin America, Africa, and Asia. International students enrich the School academic community out of proportion to their numbers. The wealth of perspectives from different environments and cultures contributes greatly to all the students' education.
