The microbiology program provides graduate training leading towards Ph.D. and M.S. degrees. This program supports broad interests in microbiology, including environmental and pathogenic microbiology, with studies that encompass a spectrum of approaches from the ecological and organismal to the molecular genetic and biochemical. Faculty from several colleges and departments participate as major advisors.
Students can enter the Microbiology program in two ways:
We train about 30 graduate students earning M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. Microbiology faculty also train graduate students enrolled in related programs such as Molecular & Cellular Biology, Genetics, Soil Science, Fisheries & Wildlife, and Oceanography. Graduate students are major contributors to the research output of the department.
This program is not accepting applications for the M.A. degree.
Application requirements, including required documents, letters, and forms, vary by program and may not be completely represented here. The processing of your application will not be completed until these requirements have been met. Please, before applying to this program, always contact the program office to confirm application requirements.
