The Master's program in the Biology Department is a two-year, research-intensive program in which students undertake an active research project that culminates in a formal written thesis. A student who successfully completes the program will be well prepared to enter into a technical position in a related research or industrial laboratory or to continue further postgraduate work (e.g., Ph.D. or M.D.). All Master's students must be paired with a Professor that will guide them in their research efforts while at USF.
