Program Description

MSc in Biology

The primary goal of the M.S. in Biology is to develop the student's ability to think creatively and critically about a range of biological subject matter and to become familiar with current research in biology. This is done principally through graduate courses, seminars, and research experience with a faculty member.

Our program offers two options for the M.S. degree:

  • Open Choice M.S.

Open Choice M.S. - This program is designed for students wishing to upgrade their expertise in the biology professions, explore or expand their interest in research, or broaden their base for making future career choices in the biological sciences.

Thesis M.S. - This program is designed for students who wish to gain an in-depth research experience.
