Graduate School - Biology


Many careers in biology require advanced degrees. Your adviser or an instructor is the best place to start to talk about graduate schools related to biology.

There are many specializations within biology and a variety of programs at the master's and doctoral levels. Talk with your adviser and other biology faculty about which specialty is best suited to your interests.

Some students pursue graduate training in fields that are very closely connected to biology (e.g., medicine or chemistry), and others pursue training in fields that are related, yet different (e.g., law and journalism).
