Graduate Degrees

The College of Science offers graduate degrees in the following disciplines.

Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Degrees offered: MS, PhD

Our faculty research interests are in biochemistry, molecular genetics, systems biology, developmental biology, cell biology, metabolism, and organism interactions with the environment in microbial, plant and animal systems. We're equipped with state-of-the-art growth facilities and instrumentation for in depth study of functional genomics, gene discovery, metabolomics, protein/nucleic acid structure and function, and molecular and cellular imaging.

Degrees offered: MS, PhD

Our degree programs emphasize independent research in an area of chemistry. Our research interests span the traditional areas of analytical, inorganic, organic, physical, and chemical education. However, many new frontiers fall at the intersections of 2 or more of these areas. As a result, interdisciplinary studies are encouraged. Many of our faculty also collaborate in computational, materials, forensics, and organometallic chemistry.

Environmental Science

Degrees offered: MS, PhD

Our graduate program specializes in a diverse group of research areas, biology, geography, philosophy, and computer science. By the end of their degree program, students are expected to become independent researchers in human-environmental interactions.
