Students join our Biology graduate program at Texas Christian University to pursue research careers in academia, prepare for professional careers that require additional training, or simply learn more about the exciting work going on at the forefront of biology.


The Texas Christian University Department of Biology embodies the teacher-scholar model and our graduate students receive the best practical training and professional mentoring. The Department of Biology offers three graduate degrees: the Master of Arts (MA, without a thesis), the Master of  Science in Biology (MS, with a thesis), and the Ph.D.


The MS Biology degree program provides students with a solid foundation in biological knowledge together with the skills necessary to excel in a wide range of careers. 

MS students engage in scholarship and research with faculty mentors, present their research at scientific meetings, and often publish their research in the peer-reviewed literature.
