The graduate degree in biology is a 32-hour program that enhances your understanding of biology to pursue a professional career or doctoral studies.
Preparing You for Success
The degree sharpens your research skills as you study advanced biology concepts. Though focused on one area of science, the degree allows you to take several courses outside the department to round out the degree. You complete the degree with a comprehensive oral exam and yearlong thesis research project.
You can earn your degree two ways at Bradley: take the traditional graduate two-year path or enroll in the five-year integrated degree as a Bradley undergraduate. If you’re interested in the accelerated degree, you apply as a junior and begin graduate courses as a senior.
Making Your Mark
Biology graduate degrees are valuable for admission to professional schools or doctoral programs. Many recent graduates are working for research labs, school districts and community colleges.
