Through coursework and research experiences, the faculty mentor M.S. and M.A. students through the scientific research process, emphasizing: the importance of critical thinking and writing skills, the ability to develop sound, testable hypotheses, and the ability to communicate scientific ideas effectively.

The M.S. degree is distinguished by a guided, in-depth research experience that includes the writing and presentation of a formal research proposal; the design, execution, and analysis of a research project; and the writing of a formal thesis. The graduate program in biology prepares students for teaching careers, professional school, or doctoral studies.
