Ecological Genomics (Graduate Certificate)
The Graduate Certificate in Ecological Genomics at the University of New Hampshire is an interdisciplinary program to provide graduate level training that spans molecular to ecological scales. Students will be trained to study genome evolution in an ecological context using a systems-based approach, whereby genomic evolution is considered within an integrated system resulting from mechanisms operating across molecular, cellular, organismal, and ecological scales. Students within the program have the opportunity to build their five course certificate from a variety of course options from four broad disciplinary areas and one required seminar course. The flexibility of the program enables students with interdisciplinary interests to complement their current degrees in the life sciences broadly, and it is ideal for students with career interests in both the applied or basic sciences. This unique program also has an inter-institutional option, which affords the possibility for interested students to fulfill one or more of the requirements through offerings at the University of Maine.
Admission Requirement: Students should be enrolled in any graduate degree program in the College of Life Sciences and Agriculture. Otherwise, students must hold a life-science related baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university, with a minimum GPA of 2.5 (or its equivalent) and achieve a minimum TOEFL score of 80, for those without a degree from an English-speaking institution. Courses taken at other institutions are not eligible to be transferred into the program.
