 Graduate Degree Applications

Although the campus-wide deadline for admittance into a graduate degree program is February 15, graduate programs in our college often have earlier deadlines. Please check information in the departments of Biomedical Sciences, Clinical Science, Environmental Health/Radiological Health Sciences, and Microbiology, Immunology, and Pathology for their specific deadlines.

Master's and PhD Doctoral Degrees - Traditional

Microbiology or Pathology
Master's and doctoral degrees are offered through the Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Pathology with emphasis areas in bacteriology, virology, molecular genetics, immunology, vector biology and pathobiology.

Biomedical Sciences
The Department of Biomedical Sciences offers graduate degrees in anatomy, neurobiology, reproductive biology, and equine reproduction.

Environmental or Radiological Health Sciences
The Department of Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences offers graduate degrees in cancer biology, health physics, radiological health, industrial and occupational health, veterinary diagnostic imaging, ergonomics and epidemiology. Consider a Master of Science (professional) in Toxicology from the Center for Environmental Medicine.

Clinical Sciences
Graduate students in Clinical Sciences have a close association with researchers in the Veterinary Teaching Hospital and benefit from hands-on instruction from clinicians working with both large and small animals. These graduate programs focus on clinical research and translational medicine.

Master's Programs (professional)

Our MSpro master's degree programs provide a competitive edge for those seeking careers with technology-based companies, governmental agencies, and non-profit organizations, as well as those seeking entry into professional schools, such as medical or veterinary school. Education is hands-on and highly integrated to provide the science and interactive skills you will need for success, and most students get their degree in 1-2 years.

Interdisciplinary Programs

Cell and Molecular Biology
This interdisciplinary program can lead to either a master's or a doctoral degree. Recent research in this program has focused on topics including cancer biology, infectious diseases, metabolism, neuroscience, plant biology, gene expression, and reproductive biology.

Integrated Livestock Management
The Integrated Livestock Management program aims to provide both training in experimental methodology and an understanding of agricultural management issues at both the master's and doctoral levels.

Molecular, Cellular and Integrative Neurosciences
Research in the Molecular, Cellular and Integrative Neurosciences graduate program emphasizes neuronal differentiation, degeneration and regeneration, membrane physiology, and synaptic mechanisms.
