The Department of Biological Sciences offers M.S., and Ph.D. in Biological Sciences.
The graduate programs in Biological Sciences offer opportunity for advanced study and research to students who desire a comprehensive view of biological sciences. Accomplishment is judged by competence and a developing sense of responsibility for the advancement of knowledge rather than the fulfillment of routine requirements. The faculty requires of all candidates for advanced degrees a period of study in residence, advanced competence in the chosen area of expertise, satisfactory introduction to allied subjects, the ability to communicate at a scholarly level, and a satisfactory performance in examinations.
Primary Areas of Faculty Research: Cell and molecular biology (biotechnology, cellular physiology, functional genomics, gene regulation, immunology, developmental biology, molecular genetics, pathogenic microbiology); ecology and evolutionary biology (animal behavior, aquatic ecology, animal and plant physiology, conservation biology, community ecology, exobiology, fisheries biology, limnology, molecular systematics, mycology, physiological ecology, plant morphology, population and quantitative genetics, taxonomy, vertebrate biology — herpetology, ichthyology, mammalogy, ornithology — and wildlife management).
