The masters of science in biology includes an intensive curriculum of core and elected courses. Two laboratory rotations during the first semester culminate in selection of a host lab and completion of a thesis project.

Research undertaken for a M.S. in biology is less extensive than that necessary for a Ph.D., enabling completion of an M.S. in two years. An M.S. in biology is qualification for many positions in industry, research or education.

The M.S. in biology is also excellent preparation for advanced graduate programs.
