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 Biological Sciences 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.

Research Experience

Ph.D. students will gain research experience through their doctoral work, journal or conference submissions, and attending conferences
