The Colorado State University (CSU) Graduate Degree Program in Ecology (GDPE) is an interdisciplinary program for students with interests in a wide range of ecological subjects. 

Students enrolled in GDPE meet degree requirements by taking several core courses in ecology, a variety of other courses, and by completing original research or a major project. Faculty advisors have primary responsibility for overseeing the graduate student’s research program

Students are “dual citizens” where their degree is in their Home Department (Ecology) and their Advising Department is the department where their faculty advisor is located.
