A brief description of the graduate minor, concentration or certificate (1st program):

The Master of Science program in Biology prepares students for employment in a variety of professional settings and for further study toward doctoral degrees such as the PhD, MD, DDS and DVM. It is a comprehensive biological science program in which students may focus their studies in cellular/molecular biology, physiology/developmental biology, *conservation ecology*, or biochemistry. The program is appropriate for students holding a baccalaureate degree in biology, health science, or related sciences, or for those who have taken the prerequisite undergraduate courses (see prerequisites below).

The emphasis of the Biology MS degree program is to develop practical research skills and a thorough conceptual foundation in the field of biological science. Students in the program receive:

- Graduate-level coursework in a rigorous, yet flexible and broad-based curriculum.
- An academic environment that fosters collaboration among students.
- Personal attention from experienced faculty.
- Advising and mentoring in academic, volunteer, research and internship opportunities that enhance student skills before transitioning to doctoral programs, professional school or the workforce.

The program is course-based and includes a one-semester research experience. Students who are prepared for additional research training may pursue a master’s thesis under the sponsorship of a department faculty member.
