The Aquatic Resources and Integrative Biology program from Texas State University emphasizes original research (including basic and applied) to provide depth and breadth of knowledge in aquatic resources and related disciplines, from the watershed and ecosystem scale down to the population, organismal and microbial scale. Students are engaged in a collaborative research environment among students, faculty, natural resource agencies, nonprofit organizations, and public and private interests. The curriculum stresses active roles for students in intellectual exchange with faculty and peers and in the critique of published research. The program prepares students to identify and solve complex problems relevant to the sustainable use of aquatic resources and ecosystems.
The program facilitates the entry of its students into the professional community of scholars and natural resource practitioners in a manner emphasizing the completion, presentation, and publication of original, creative research. Among graduating doctoral students, approximately 60% go to academia, 15% to federal/state agencies, 15% to the public sector, and 10% to the private sector.
