Master of Science in Biology
The program is structured so that a student may concentrate effort in a selected area of biology. These include: 1) cell and molecular biology, 2) structural biology, 3) physiology, 4) genetics, and 5) ecology and evolutionary biology. Students complete a required common core of courses totaling 14 semester hours (including thesis) plus 22 semester hours of electives. Each graduate student also conducts an independent research project under the guidance of a faculty advisor and graduate committee. Advisors include faculty from the biology department as well as faculty from the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine. The committee is composed of a minimum of three members of the graduate faculty, one of whom must be from outside the biology area.
