Ph.D. Degree Program

Our graduate program is designed to provide students with a broad introduction to graduate level topics in diverse areas of biology.  Our courses are intended to broaden and deepen your thinking in biological concepts, research, and quantitative hypothesis testing. Additionally, students participate in independent study with individual faculty.  Since most course requirements are usually completed in the first year, students will have time to engage fully in individual research projects by the second year.
