Graduate Studies in Biochemistry

M.S. Program

The Biochemistry Department offers a two-year M.S. degree. Students completing the Biochemistry M.S. degree with research experience are well-suited for positions in academic, government, hospital, and industrial laboratories. Students with the Biochemistry M.S. degree also obtain positions in fields not directly involved with research, such as teaching and various administrative positions in the pharmaceutical industry. M.S. students may transfer into the Ph.D. program but they must have performed well in their coursework and displayed significant research potential.

M.S. students can be admitted in either the fall or spring. Deadlines for completed applications are June 15 for fall semester and November 1 for spring semester. The M.S. program is independent of the Ph.D. program and students are evaluated by different committees.

For M.S. application students should submit a completed online application, three letters of recommendation, official undergraduate transcript(s), official GRE scores (Verbal, Quantitative and Analytical) and, when applicable, official TOEFL scores.

We are excited to announce that we will offer a two-semester lecture and laboratory course sequence beginning in the fall of 2018. These courses will cover important techniques in biochemistry and molecular biology, and will provide students with hands-on experience at the bench in recombinant protein production, mammalian cell culture, molecular and cell biology, and mass spectrometry. These courses will also cover experimental design and documentation of experiments.
