Advance your education

General information

As a graduate student in the School of Biological Sciences, you will advance your education in an academic environment that values scholastic achievement, personal growth, and professional collegiality.

If you pursue either a Master's or Doctoral degree, you will work closely with your faculty mentor to design your program of study and conduct your advanced training. Mentorship of graduate students is a top priority of biology faculty, and the effort is rewarded with 100% career placement of students after graduation.

Graduate student support

While working on a degree, most graduate students in biology are supported financially through one of three mechanisms:

  • Teaching Assistantships (TAs) -- these can be arranged through the School of Biological Sciences
  • Research Assistantships (RAs) -- these are typically provided by a student's faculty mentor
