The Department of Biological Sciences offers Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in the fields of physiology; cancer biology, cardiovascular biology; cell and extracellular matrix biology; developmental biology; microbiology and virology; and molecular biology and genetics. Formalized concentrations have been established to provide students with customized research and career mentorship. Since many students pursuing the PhD in Biological Sciences are interested in pursuing careers in industrial science, the Department of Biological Sciences and The Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics has developed a jointly administered PhD in Biological Sciences/ MBA degree.
