The Bradley Advantage

Bradley’s graduate biology program sharpens your research abilities as you gain deeper knowledge of the science. You focus on biology topics and research, but you also can supplement that knowledge with courses in chemistry, computer science or related fields. You complete the program with a comprehensive oral exam and a yearlong thesis research project. Though you have five years to complete the degree, you can finish it in two years as a full-time student.

Successful Outcomes

Bradley’s graduate biology program successfully prepares you for doctoral studies or the workforce. In recent years, almost all graduates found jobs or continued their education within six months of graduation. They’re working at places such as DuPont Pioneer, Eli Lilly and Co., Endotronix and the University of Colorado Cancer Center. Others are attending graduate schools at institutions such as Georgetown University, Northwestern University and Palmer College of Chiropractic.
