Ph.D. in Biological Sciences

Upon entering the program, students will be assigned an advisory committee to assist them in tailoring a curriculum that best fits their educational needs, research interests, and career plans.

As a general guideline, Ph.D. students are required to complete 60 credits. For students in the Cell Biology and Neuroscience Department's Biological Sciences Doctoral Program, this will include a mix of dissertation credits and graduate-level coursework credits beyond the Bachelor’s degree or Master’s degree.  The exact proportion of the above-mentioned credits will be determined for each student by their advisory committee.
