Course detail

Format and assessment

The M.S. degree in microbiology and immunology requires the submission and oral defense of either a research-based or literature-based thesis. Candidates are required to obtain a major advisor and an advisory committee. For the research-based thesis, the advisory committee will help formulate a study program to include a minimum of 17 semester credits of graduate work, including two seminars with an M&I prefix and 13 semester credits of research (which could include journal clubs, seminars, or special topics). For the literature-based thesis, the student, with assistance of the advisory committee, will select the additional courses required to fulfill the 30 semester credit limit. The advisory committee will also provide counseling and evaluate student progress. If a student is uncertain of a major area of concentration, the program director will serve as a temporary advisor until the student selects an area and is accepted by an advisory professor.

Admissions Requirements:

Applicants must fulfill the requirements for admission established by the Gradute School. Preference is given to students with a grade point average of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 grading scale. Letters of recommendation and GRE scores are also considered.
