Coursework M.S.

BioMedThe Plan II MS option provides qualified students the opportunity to earn a Master’s in Microbiology and Environmental Toxicology in one year.

The distinctive features are:

1) Students will be able to earn the MS degree in a single year, versus two years for the Plan I research/thesis MS students, who require two years to complete their substantial research requirement.

2) Students will receive a rich educational experience with emphasis on multidisciplinary microbiology and environmental health-related curricula. By taking the same graduate courses as the research MS and PhD students, and by having the opportunity to closely interact with those students as well as faculty in a research university, the Plan II MS students will gain both broader and deeper perspectives into the critical environmental health issues of our day.
