Very Good Zoology Courses For A Non-Thesis Masters Degree In Biology

I think that to many non-thesis masters degrees in biology have too many cell biology, microbiology, genetics, immunology, and seminars and to few zoology courses so here are some suggestions.
I like a lot of biology majors with undergraduate degrees want to get a non-thesis masters degree in biology. I checked quite a few universities in the United States. Here are some zoology courses which I want to have in a program for a non-thesis masters degree in biology.
University of Nebraska at Lincoln- Cedar Point Biological Station- Bios 454/854 Ecological Interactions, Bios 468/868 Field Animal Behavior, Bios 481 Helminthology, Bios 487/887 Field Parasitology, Bios 488/888 Natural History of Invertebrates. East Stroudsburg University- Biol 515 Helminthology, Biol 547 Biology of the Plankton, Biol 527 Natural History of Western Fauna, Biol 543 Stream Ecology, Biom 503 Comparative Physiology of Marine Organisms, Biom 563 Marine Biology Cruise, Biom 572 Coral Reef Ecology, Biom 575 Behavior of Marine Organisms, Biom 579 Ecology of Marine Plankton, Biom 583 Wetland Ecology, Biom 587 Tropical Invertebrates, Biom 589 Physiology of Marine Invertebrates, Biom 594 Biology of Molluscs.

There is another story about Non-Thesis Masters degrees in biology- zoology courses at Hudson Mohawk Indymedia. You will find it published in May or June 2012 at their Indymedia site. I'm sorry I can't remember the exact date.
