Graduate Program

The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology offers research-based programs of study leading to the Master of Science (M.S.) degree and the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree. Graduate work is more than a continuation and extension of undergraduate work. It is an inquiry into the current status of scientific knowledge and also into the basis for this knowledge and the methodology involved in its acquisition. Successful graduate work leading to an advanced degree must be motivated by scientific curiosity. This will lead to exploration beyond obvious explanations and ultimately result in contributions to the solution of still unsolved problems of importance to mankind.
