2023-2024 Graduate Catalog


Cooper Science Complex CL 121, 765-285-8820




Master of arts (MA) in biology; master of science (MS) in biology; master of arts (MA) in physiology; master of science (MS) in physiology; and doctor of philosophy (PhD) in environmental science.  A certificate in biotechnology is available, which includes courses that also fulfill requirements for the master’s degree programs.   A graduate minor in biology is also offered at the master’s level. 


These programs are designed for students who hold bachelor of science or bachelor of arts degrees in biology. Students with substantial biology backgrounds but who have undergraduate degrees in related life science disciplines may be admitted to the graduate program to begin some graduate course work while making up any undergraduate course deficiencies. However, courses taken to remove undergraduate deficiencies cannot be applied to fulfill graduate credit requirements. These students should discuss their situations with the biology graduate advisor to determine whether their backgrounds are sufficient to begin graduate work in biology and what, if any, undergraduate biology course work would be required to address deficiencies.


See the Science listing under the College of Sciences and Humanities for the doctoral program in environmental science.
