The University of Denver's master of science in biological sciences provides students with graduate training centered on primary research, featuring concentrations in cell and molecular biology and ecology, biodiversity and evolution. Students begin their research with a faculty advisor upon entrance to the program, developing an independent research project that will culminate in a written thesis, public seminar and oral defense. The majority of our MS students have their work published in a scientific journal.
Because of the program's emphasis on primary research, graduates finish the degree strongly positioned to pursue a range of postgraduate opportunities, including careers in biotech and academic labs, government labs or agencies, or continued studies in professional or doctoral programs.
