Arkansas Education Activities

As part of our mission, Unit scientists teach graduate level courses, mentor graduate students, and conduct workshops for our cooperators. By combining teaching, research and technical assistance, the Arkansas Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit provides students not only with an opportunity to pursue a graduate degree, but also receive scientific training and applied work experience.

Students in the Arkansas Unit Program can pursue a M.S. or Ph.D. degree through the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. Students working with Brett DeGregorio generally pursue projects in avian ecology or herpetology while students working with Dan Magoulick generally pursue projects in aquatic ecology.
