Molecular Biosciences Graduate Program

The department does not require that students first earn a Master's Degree before they seek the PhD. Thus, the department does not award many Master's Degrees and these are only available by special arrangement. Students interested in pursuing the Master's Degree should interact with the Director of Graduate Studies or a potential mentor to explore the possibilities before submitting an application. Information regarding the Master's Degree Program can be found on the Graduate School Program Profiles page.
