Biology

Has the wonder of life always held you in awe? Do you have a Bachelor's degree in science and are not sure what to do with it? Then consider a Master in Biology, a degree program that can advance your career to the next level.

With a Master in Biology, you will investigate the study of life. Biology is a natural science that is concerned with the structure, function and evolution of various life forms, and encompasses an enormous field of science. Modern biology is a fairly new field, developed in the 1800s, but the study of life has been around long before this time. With a Master in Biology, you aren't restricted to only one field, since Biology frequently combines with other fields of science. There are many biochemists and biophysicists, marine biologists and astrobiologists. Many Master in Biology programs delve into these subjects and students can choose a specialization area of interest to them.

On this page you can find a wide selection of Master in Biology programs. Scroll down and see if any of these catch your eye!
