Doctor of Philosophy in Biology

Our Doctor of Philosophy program specializes ecology and evolutionary biology (EEB) and cell and developmental biology (CDB). Our program involves an in-depth, independent, original research experience culminating in an approved dissertation. It is expected that the doctoral graduate will be properly equipped with the knowledge and training needed to independently pursue projects of fundamental importance through research and to teach at an advanced level in his/her area of specialty and at introductory levels the basic concepts of biology.

Refer to the current 2015-16 Biology Graduate Handbook for important information on additional requirements related to teaching, seminar requirements, comprehensive oral exam, and grades.
