Microbiology Graduate Major (MA, MS, PhD)
Graduate Areas of Concentration
Environmental microbiology, food microbiology, genomics, immunology, microbial ecology, microbial evolution, parasitology, pathogenic microbiology, virology
Administered by the Department of Microbiology under the School of Life Sciences.
The Department of Microbiology offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Science (thesis and non-thesis), and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. Major fields of study are diverse and include basic and applied aspects of virology and bacteriology; pathogenic microbiology; environmental and applied microbiology, bioinformatics and microbial evolution. Students may minor in a variety of related disciplines in the life sciences, biological data sciences and biochemistry.
The principal objectives of the thesis-based M.S. and Ph.D. programs in Microbiology are the completion of a comprehensive research project and preparation of a thesis document. Coursework and research projects are developed with the major professor and are subject to approval by a committee of graduate faculty members. Microbiology research facilities are excellent and well-equipped. A non-thesis M.S. engages students through classroom and laboratory courses.
