The biology department strives to foster the ability to critically examine information and discover new knowledge through rigorous scientific reasoning in budding life scientists. The graduate programs in the biology department are designed for students preparing for a career in biological fields requiring advanced training or for the teaching professional. Hands-on research training is a cornerstone of our programs and courses. The research and coursework you’re given will emphasize the integrative nature of biological studies.
Thesis and non-thesis options are available for most of our graduate degrees. We strongly encourage our students to complete thesis research. A master’s thesis is an in-depth and original research project conducted during your graduate studies. Students generally conduct these projects over the course of several semesters under the guidance of a faculty advisor. All students should consider the “thesis option” because prospective employers and continuing programs (i.e. PhD) are more interested in applicants with substantial research experience.
