Integrative Biology is an emerging paradigm identified by the National Academy of Sciences. Because biological systems are so complex, solving life science problems requires linking concepts and information between disciplines and organizational scales. We offer a master degree in Integrative Biology at the Kennesaw State University. 


The curriculum of Kennesaw State University's Master of Science in Integrative Biology (MSIB) advances understanding by providing integrative courses and experiences specifically designed to foster connections across the life sciences spectrum. 

This approach prepares our students as scientists well-equipped to address pressing issues in the biosciences.

Why Kennesaw State's MSIB?

  • Whatever your goals - further graduate study, admission to professional school, employment opportunities or career advancement - our program integrates core biological principles with the flexibility to tailor your education to your needs and interests. 
  • We've planned your core coursework to include not only the fundamental life science concepts but also practical aspects that will prepare you to function in the real world of science. 

Programme Structure

  • Our students center their experience in a thesis focused on a specific research question, working with a thesis advisor they choose from a group of faculty members who work on a wide diversity of organisms including animals, plants and microorganisms. 
  • Your thesis advisor will be in the lab or field doing experiments with you, giving you the personal attention you need to succeed. With our well-equipped research facilities, external and internal research funding, and high quality publication record, Kennesaw State's MSIB program offers a unique combination of 'big name' research excellence with 'small school' research mentoring, so you’ll be ready for your next step.
