Master of Science in Developmental Biology
University requirements for the M.S. are described in the "Graduate Degrees" section of this bulletin.
Students in the Ph.D. program in Developmental Biology may apply for an M.S. degree, assuming completion of their course requirements and preparation of a written proposal. The master's degree awarded by the Department of Developmental Biology does not include the possibility of minors for graduate students enrolled in other departments or programs.
Students are required to take, and satisfactorily complete, at least three lecture courses offered by the department, including 210, Developmental Biology. In addition, students are required to take three courses outside the department. Students are also expected to attend Developmental Biology seminars and journal clubs. In addition, the candidate must complete a research paper proposing a specific experimental approach and background in an area of science relative to developmental biology.
