Master of Science, Master of, Doctor of Philosophy


The Ph.D. program in biochemistry is designed to prepare individuals for careers in research and/or education. Emphasis is placed primarily on laboratory research, where students work closely with faculty to develop expertise in desired techniques and are mentored in the scientific process. The Master of Science (M.S). program is designed for students who wish to pursue a career in science at the bench. Master of Science students complete 30 credit hours of coursework and mentored research. The Master of Biochemistry (M.R.) program is a non-thesis option designed for students preparing for a career in science policy or sales, or for those already in the workforce wishing to continue their education. We do not recommended this program for students intending to pursue an advanced degree in the health sciences (M.D., D.V.M., etc).
