Utah State University offers MS and PhD degrees in Ecology through multiple departments and colleges at Utah State University. Two specializations exist for this degree: the Aquatic Ecology specialization (offered through the Watershed Sciences Department) and the Wildlife Ecology specialization (offered through the Wildland Resources Department). The Wildland Resources Department (WILD) proposes to add a Forest Ecology specialization at the MS and PhD levels. This would be a specialization conferred only by the Wildland Resources Department, which is the home to the majority of courses involved in the proposal, and is also home to the majority of USU faculty with expertise in Forestry.
