Ready to take your degree to the next level?
Develop cutting-edge research skills in an innovative and collegial environment. As a graduate student in the Department of Biological Sciences, you will join a community of world-renowned researchers who are not only advancing our understanding of biological processes, but spearheading solutions to real-world issues such as:
- biodiversity loss and the conservation of plants and animals at risk
- the adverse effects of chemical and physical agents on cells and organisms
- the roles of microbes in altering cell morphology and physiology and degrading pollution
- the evolutionary and genetic basis for human diseases (e.g., diabetes, Alzheimer’s, autism and schizophrenia)
With a tradition of research excellence and specializations in three broad thematic areas, our programs provide the skills and knowledge you will need to advance scientific research and further your scientific career.
In addition to traditional research-based graduate programs at the masters and doctoral level, we offer two applied Masters programs in Environmental Toxicology and Pest Management.
Graduates of our programs work in a variety of government, health care, conservation and biotechnology-related organizations and are employed by academic and research institutions around the globe.
