About

Programs of study leading to a MS degree in Microbiology at the University of Georgia are offered in different fields of microbiology including genetics, ecology, pathogenesis, cell biology, physiology, anaerobic microbiology, biotechnology and bioinformatics.

Overview

Students with a B.S. degree may apply directly for either the M.S. or Ph.D. program. If your goal is a terminal Masters degree, you may want to consider applying for admission into our MS in Microbiology program. However, if you ultimately plan to pursue a PhD, it is strongly recommended that you apply directly to the PhD program. 

There are several key differences between our MS and PhD programs. In order to be accepted into the MS in Microbiology program at the University of Georgia, you must first identify a faculty member in our program that is willing to serve as your MS thesis mentor. It is possible that some faculty members will be able to provide financial support in the form of research or teaching assistantships; however, financial support is not guaranteed for students that enter through the MS program. In contrast, a tuition waiver and stipend support are guaranteed for all students that enter the PhD program. Please review the following items to learn more about our MS in Microbiology program.

Programme Structure

  • Degree requirements include the successful completion of course work and comprehensive exams, and submission of a thesis or dissertation consisting of original, scholarly research in the field of microbiology. In the first three semesters, students take a core curriculum in microbial physiology and metabolism, molecular biology, and microbial diversity. 
  • Advanced courses in specialized areas are also available through the Department of Microbiology and the Division of Biological Sciences. Teaching experience is vital to careers in science, so we require all graduate students in our program to teach a minimum of two courses at some suitable point while in our program. We take great pride in our graduate instructors and provide the necessary mentoring in instructional skills.
