  1. Develop expertise in a specialized field of biology through independent study and research, supported by a well-planned program of cognate courses,
  2. Learn the methods employed in biological investigation and proceed toward making his/her own contribution to the scientific community, and
  3. Participate in the dissemination of the biological knowledge.

We emphasize the following degrees:
