Master of Science in Biology

The Master of Science program in Biology offers students opportunity for advanced learning in their chosen area of biology. Our purpose is to train students broadly in modern biological principles, so that they acquire the strong foundation needed to become highly skilled and intellectually independent scientists. The program is committed to excellence in education, research and service.
