There are two concurrent steps for applying for admission to the Zoology Graduate Program: (1) completing your application (starting with this web page – see below), and (2) finding a graduate advisor. If you are accepted by our admissions committee, yet do not find an advisor, then you will not be accepted by the program, so it is important that you contact potential advisors directly.
