Biology

A masters is earned after students complete an undergraduate degree program. To obtain a masters, you usually need to complete 12 to 18 college courses that often involve completing comprehensive tests and/or a thesis.

Biology examines the activity of organisms in the areas of function, growth, and evolution, as well as how these factors affect where the organism lives. It can further study how individual organisms interact within their environment.
