A master’s degree is a type of graduate certification that is earned after students have completed a course of study that takes approximately two years. Generally, this degree indicates that a student has obtained a high level of proficiency in his or her chosen field.

Exactly what is a Master in Microbiology? This type of degree is meant to help students learn all about biology on a very small scale. Microbiology includes the study of bacteria, viruses, amoebas, fungi, algae, and even some plants and animals; it may focus on single-celled organisms or on specific components of multicellular organisms. Students may study the environments microbes live in, as well as organic chemistry, evolution, or cellular structure. Some programs may offer a special focus, such as biology education or biological engineering.

A number of advantages are available to those who complete a degree in microbiology. For example, students may be able to give their critical thinking and problem-solving skills a boost. Additionally, students might be able to enhance their professional knowledge base, allowing them to pursue a career within the realm of microbiology.

The cost of a microbiology master’s degree will depend on everything from the availability of financial aid to the costs of materials. Students should contact their institution directly for accurate and current information.

Those who earn a degree in microbiology might be able to pursue a number of different careers. For example, they might end up working in a medical facility or research laboratory; some students go on to become scientists specializing in microbiology. Students may also become pathologists, quality control experts, sanitation consultants, ecological analysts, or educators. Jobs may be available in a wide variety of businesses, government agencies, and nonprofits.

There are several available options for students interested in microbiology master’s degrees. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
