Estimado estudiante de biología: Si te interesa continuar estudios graduados en las ciencias biológicas, quiero que consideres nuestro innovador programa de Maestría (M.S.) en Biología en Pesca y Vida Silvestre en Arkansas Tech University (www.atu.edu). Este programa tiene una larga tradición de excelencia en la preparación de profesionales interesados en la ecología y la conservación de vida silvestre. Contrario a otros programas que enfatizan el aspecto teórico, nuestro programa se concentra en las operaciones de campo en las que los estudiantes desarrollan experiencias prácticas, proyectos de investigación y conecciones con agencias estatales y federales que protegen los recursos naturales. Muchos de los egresados de la Maestría en Biología en Pesca y Vida Silvestre en Arkansas Tech University consiguen trabajo en agencias tales como: U.S. Fisheries and Wildlife Service, U. S. Forest Service, National Park Service, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Environmental Protection Agency. Muchas de estas agencias federales tienen oficinas y proyectos de investigación en Puerto Rico. Para más detalles, puedes comunicarte (en español) con el Dr. Wilson González-Espada at (479) 968-0248 o por e-mail a la dirección wgonzalezespada@atu.edu. Para información en inglés, puedes comunicarte con Dr. Charles Gagen (cgagen@atu.edu), Department of Biological Science, (479) 968-0294. ---- Master of Science, Fisheries and Wildlife Science (http://pls.atu.edu/biology/fw/index.htm) The Master of Science in Fisheries and Wildlife Biology was established in the Fall of 2000 to build on Arkansas Tech University's longstanding tradition of educating fisheries and wildlife professionals. The Master of Science in Fisheries and Wildlife Biology is offered for those who wish to pursue careers in various areas of fisheries or wildlife biology, and for those who wish to obtain a graduate degree before continuing their education at the doctoral level. The Department of Biological Sciences offers the M.S. degree with the option of selecting a concentration of study in either fisheries or wildlife science. Full-time research and teaching assistantships with full tuition waivers are available on a regular basis, pending the status of funding cycles and the outcome of grant writing efforts. For information on currently available assistantships students should directly contact faculty members whose interests most closely parallel theirs. The two general categories of assistantships are teaching and research. Duties of a full-time teaching assistant include instructing two freshman-level biological laboratories per semester, assisting with an upper-division fisheries and wildlife course, and work on a thesis research project. Duties of a full-time research assistantship focus primarily on research related directly to the source of funding for a grant, and may include research obligations beyond those required by the thesis research. Assistantships sometimes are a hybrid of these two primary types of assistantships. Applications should be received before October 1 for enrollment the following spring semester and March 1 for enrollment the following fall semester to ensure full consideration for teaching and research assistantships. Applications received after these dates will be considered as funds become available. Applications for graduate assistantships are available through the Office of Graduate Studies. If you need additional information on the program or potential research projects please feel free to contact any of the fisheries and wildlife faculty. Their e-mails and phone numbers can be found on their web pages.
