Students entering the graduate training Molecular, Cellular, and Systemic Physiology program at Southern Illinois University are advised to plan the course work so as to acquire a broad knowledge of the field before emphasizing one of these sub-disciplines. 


Key Features

Graduate courses in physiology may be taken leading to the Master of Science or the Doctor of Philosophy degrees with a major in molecular, cellular and systemic physiology. Graduate courses in molecular, cellular and systemic physiology may also contribute to a program leading to a Master of Science degree major in biological sciences or to a teaching specialty for the Master of Science in Education degree major in secondary education or in higher education.

The Molecular, Cellular, and Systemic Physiology program at Southern Illinois University offers advanced training in mammalian physiology, aging, cancer biology, cell physiology, molecular biology, molecular endocrinology, neuro-endocrinology, neurophysiology, neuropharmacology, reproductive biology, and reproductive endocrinology, metabolism and human anatomy. The advisory system in the department is set up to help students in planning their work. All graduate training programs in the department are subject to approval of the graduate program committee (GPC) of the department.

Each term the student must be engaged in a training assignment which supplements formal course work and will consist of research or teaching or both. The student is required to have participated in both types of activities, research and teaching, as a graduate student at SIU as a condition for receiving a graduate degree.

Prerequisites for graduate training in molecular, cellular and systemic physiology include an undergraduate degree in one of the biological, physical, or behavioral sciences, preferably with one year each of physics, mathematics, and chemistry.
