Zoology Graduate Program

The School of Life Sciences (formerly Department of Biology) hosts the Zoology Graduate Program, offering three degrees: a thesis M.S. (Plan A) in Zoology, a more coursework-oriented non-thesis M.S. (Plan B) in Zoology, and the Ph.D in Zoology.

The thesis M.S. and the Ph.D. are research-oriented degrees, intended primarily for students intending a career involving research.

The non-thesis M.S. requires less research experience than does the thesis M.S. and so is appropriate for students planning non-research careers, such as teaching or government service.
