Biology

The University of San Francisco offers a Master of Science degree in Biology in which hands-on lab research with full-time teaching/research faculty is its focus.

The Biology and Chemistry programs at USF are designed for graduate students seeking a graduate program with personalized research direction and training from full-time faculty - all while studying in one of the world's most beautiful cities.

All students admitted to the graduate program receive generous financial assistance from the Department of Biology, which includes a full-tuition scholarship for their graduate studies. Most graduate students are also awarded a Teaching Assistantship with a stipend of $7,200 per year and some qualified graduate students receive Research Assistantships as well.

The Biology research experience and training in USF's graduate program prepares our graduate students well for a future in one of the following areas:

  • Professional research positions in the educational, medical, pharmaceutical or biotech fields, as well as other industries with biological research and development
  • Further studies in a Ph.D. program or medical school
  • Teaching positions at the high school and community college level
