Graduate Programs Overview
You’ll have opportunities to participate in world-class scientific
experiments, submit articles to journals and present your work at scientific meetings.
You’ll work in newly renovated research labs with
state-of-the-art instrumentation and have access to the university’s parallel
We’ll help you grow as an independent scientist by honing
your research, oral communication and written communication skills
A flexible curriculum allows you to tailor a program to fit your
individual interests. And a flexible schedule, including many evening classes,
allows you to complete the program on a part- or full-time basis.
Thanks to a ratio of one full-time faculty member for every four
students, you’re never just a face in a crowd. Far from it — the mentoring
relationships you develop here will carry into your professional life.
We offer financial aid to students every year in the form of
research assistantships or teaching assistantships with tuition credits, a
competitive stipend and health care benefits.
