We offer a master degree in Biology at the University of Nebraska Kearney. This is a program designed to train the modern biologist and is divided into two potential tracks based upon student needs and program availability.


Key Features

The Department of Biology at University of Nebraska Kearney offers three options for graduate students, depending upon your needs.

Resident students conduct original research and generate a thesis. The thesis should result in a manuscript that makes a significant contribution to their field and demonstrates that the student is capable of doing original research and presenting the results in a clear and concise manner. The student presents this work in a public seminar and then defends it before a faculty committee at the end of his or her program.

The M.S. non-thesis option is designed primarily for non-resident students who would like to acquire greater expertise in modern biology. In lieu of a thesis defense, students completing this option are required to pass a comprehensive examination that covers material from their coursework.  This option is ideal for professionals in select biology-related fields who are currently engaged in research or do not require research for their profession.

Programme Structure

  • The Department of Biology is a huge proponent of undergraduate research. All Biology students are strongly encouraged to perform undergraduate research. 
  • These research experiences can benefit student learning by promoting critical thinking and problem solving. 
  • They also increase science knowledge in the chosen field by introducing students to published research and new technologies. Students may also benefit from the creativity required for research and enjoyment of scientific discovery.
