Overview

Key Features

The Department of Biology offers three ways of achieving the Master of Science degree. The first is a 30 credit hour non-thesis option suitable for those who may already have extensive research experience, for educators who seek to upgrade their academic skills but do not require research experience, or for those who need to broaden their biological background. 

The second is a 32 credit hour Professional Science track that includes a strong business component for students who are interested in learning more about the business aspects of companies. This track may not be appropriate for students who are interested in pursuing a PhD or working primarily as laboratory scientists. The third is a 30 credit hour traditional apprenticeship in research leading to a written thesis. All students admitted to the graduate program are considered to be in the non-thesis program unless they have been accepted into an individual faculty lab. 

The Biology program from University of Missouri–St. Louis also trains students to become effective secondary school and junior college biology teachers.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

Starting with a common core, both the thesis and non-thesis option may be developed into a final degree program in either of two broad areas in biology:

  • Cell and Molecular Biology or
  • Ecology, Evolution, and Systematics.
