Biological Sciences: Ph.D., M.S., Ph.D./MBA
The Department of Biological Sciences offers master of science and doctor of philosophy degrees in the fields of physiology, cancer biology, cardiovascular biology, cell and extracellular matrix biology, developmental biology, microbiology and virology, and molecular biology and genetics. Formalized concentrations have been established to provide students with customized research and career mentorship. Since many students pursuing the Ph.D. in biological sciences are interested in pursuing careers in industrial science, the Department of Biological Sciences and the Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics have developed a jointly administered Ph.D. in biological sciences/MBA degree.
A dual degree in the MBA and Ph.D. in biological sciences programs is available to graduate students.
