The graduate programs in the Department of Biological Sciences are multifaceted; graduate students engage in research at scales ranging from the molecular to the ecosystem. Regardless of the system, advanced methodology is applied to answer crucial questions in several fields including neuroscience, ecology, physiology, cell/molecular biology and evolutionary biology. Throughout the program graduate students are given the opportunity to explore their chosen field, learn about the fields of their fellow students, develop professionally and contribute to the greater community. In many cases, beyond an individual lab group, students and their faculty mentors are parts of larger clusters comprised of faculty members and students with complementary interests. These unique thematic clusters facilitate professional development of each student as they follow their chosen career pathway and work collaboratively as part of a larger community.
