The Master of Arts in Biology program helps students to update and deepen their knowledge of the biomedical sciences, prepare for employment in related fields, and advance their professional standing while obtaining a graduate science degree on a part-time basis through evening, weekend and online courses.
The program is designed to be adaptable to each individual's unique background and goals, and it provides a flexible curriculum and close individual advising for each student. Students include science and health professionals, teachers, technicians, and individuals in biology-related businesses.
Students in this program have the option of choosing a concentration in neurobiology for deeper, more focused study.
The Master of Science (MS) in Biology is designed to fit the schedules of working teachers. It consists of two three-week summer institutes in residence at Washington University. The remaining course work, which is performed during the academic years, is completed online. Summer housing is available for out-of-town students and is included in the cost of the program.
