DEPARTMENT of BIOLOGY

Masters of Science in Biology


Mission Statement

The Masters of Science in Biology program at Winthrop University offers students broad training in Biology. Students may concentrate in areas ranging from conservation biology and behavioral ecology to biomedical research in cancer, molecular biology, and bioinformatics. Students work closely with graduate faculty advisors who hold Ph.D.s in their areas of specialization and are active researchers. Graduate courses are small (12 students or fewer) allowing for maximum interactions between students and their professors. Our graduate faculty members enjoy teaching and mentoring graduate students and many have won awards for their teaching and scholarship.
