MS Biology Degree

The graduate program in biology is designed to provide students greater depth and breadth in course work and to introduce them to the nature of creative and productive inquiry for careers in teaching, research in governmental, industrial and academic organizations, and entrance into doctoral programs. Students seeking unconditional admission to the graduate program in Biology must present a "B" average for a minimum of 30 credits of undergraduate biology, credit for four semesters of chemistry to include organic chemistry, two semesters of physics, and mathematics through Calculus I. Completion of one semester of Biochemistry is also desirable.

The Master of Science in Biology requires the completion of two semesters of residence and at least 30 or 36 credits of graduate-level courses for the thesis and non-thesis project options, respectively. An emphasis of the program is placed on admitting students for a Master of Science degree in Biology with a research thesis. Students have the opportunity to conduct research with active researchers in a variety of biomedical disciplines that include cancer biology, developmental biology, cardiovascular biology, and neuroscience. Students also have opportunities to conduct research in protistology, microbiology, and science education research with Biology graduate faculty.

Funding opportunities are available for admitted graduate students, through graduate student stipends awarded by the Graduate School or Department of Biology. Graduate research assistantships are also available from research grants awarded to Department faculty.
