Other requirements

General requirements

  • Graduation from an accredited college or university with an overall minimum GPA of 3.00.
  • Two letters of reference from nonrelated persons.
  • While interdisciplinary in nature and accepting candidates with a variety of backgrounds and degrees, the program is heavily technical and scientific in design. 
  • Applicants will ideally have some training in the biological and physical sciences. If the admission committee notes a lack of scientific background in an applicant's preparation, it will require the student to complete a cell-based general biology course, specifically approved by the program directors, prior to taking any of the scientifically oriented courses in the program, with the exception of ENVM 501 (Biological and Environmental Chemistry). 
  • This cell-based general biology course may be an undergraduate course and will not count toward the 36 credits required for degree completion.
