ABOUT THE BACTERIOLOGY PROGRAM
The Bacteriology Master of Science (M.S.) program's goals are to give students a solid understanding of the scientific process and to provide the opportunity to obtain advanced training in microbiology. Students tailor a curriculum of advanced coursework and research to fit their needs. The degree program exists in two forms: one involves primarily formal coursework and has no research requirement; the other requires significant laboratory research, including formal written thesis or manuscript.

The M.S. in Bacteriology program does not provide funding for any student in the program and financial support for Master's students is limited. Because the program is flexible, students are able to work part or full-time at jobs on or off campus while enrolled. Students in the research option may be paid as research assistants by their research mentor if funds are available.
