Overview

Physiological Sciences degree offered by the University of Arizona , graduate students work side-by-side with the faculty investigators addressing disease processes in diabetes, cardiovascular disease, neuroscience, cancer, and asthma. Our faculty use innovative research techniques and experimental approaches from molecular to human studies.

Physiology PhD graduates can enter careers in academia, industry, and government. Our faculty are nationally recognized scientists, with expertize in professional development and nationally recognized mentoring awards. We have an ethnically and educationally diverse student body, and offer both a PhD and a Research based Masters program (with funded Teaching Assistanships). Our program includes 60 faculty members from 19 departments, across 6 Colleges at the University of Arizona, and students have opportunities to work with scientists in clincial departments in the College of Medicine.

Department

The Graduate College sponsors several Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs (GIDPs) in addition to the many interdisciplinary possibilities available through regular graduate degree programs. GIDPs transcend departmental boundaries by facilitating cutting edge teaching and research at the nexus of traditional disciplines. The high value placed on interdisciplinary research and education is indicative of The University of Arizona's enthusiasm and commitment to fostering innovation and creativity among its faculty and students.
