The Department of Biological Sciences offers programs leading to the graduate degrees of Master of Arts and Master of Science and, in conjunction with the Department of Curriculum and Instruction in the School of Education, provides courses that support the Master of Science in Education degree in secondary education with a teaching field in biology.
Graduate students in biology may concentrate in one of several areas such as evolution, ecology and environment, conservation biology, anatomy, physiology, genetics, cellular and molecular biology, and genetic engineering. Students interested in taxonomic studies can benefit from faculty affiliations with the Missouri Botanical Garden in nearby St. Louis and the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago.
Numerous career and advanced training opportunities are available to persons holding a Master's degree in biology. These include doctoral training in biology and in the health sciences; secondary and junior college teaching; environmental assessment; and employment in educational, industrial, and governmental laboratories and agencies.
