Biology, PhD

The biology PhD program offers individualized courses of study tailored to students interests that include laboratory, field and theoretical work. Flexibility in the program is achieved by requiring only one core class, which is a choice between two topics that cover the breadth of the research directions in this program.

Electives are also as flexible as possible and include areas outside of biology. The major goal of this program is to provide opportunities to create an adaptable and general degree that allows both traditional and interdisciplinary approaches in any area of biology.
