Biological Sciences Graduate Programs
Master of Science (MS) and Doctorate (PhD) Degrees
The Drexel University Department of Biology offers a Master of Science (MS) degree and Doctoral (PhD) degree in Biological Sciences. The intellectual life of the Department of Biology depends on the participation, creativity and energy of our graduate students. We expect students to be vigorously involved in coursework, seminars, research, discussions and other functions across the department.
Our graduate curriculum provides a solid foundation in professional education, encompassing factual and theoretical concepts as well as basic research skills and training. Students may create an individualized curriculum with consultation and permission from their Research Committee and the Graduate Program Committee. Regardless of the curricula, graduate students must demonstrate mastery of curricular subjects via oral and/or written examinations.

Biology Graduate Student Association
The Biology Graduate Student Association (BGSA) provides an engaged and exciting forum for information exchange between graduate students, faculty and the administration. As one of the most active graduate student associations on campus, the BGSA’s mission is to elevate the academic experience of biology graduate students by maintaining an active social environment among existing, new and prospective graduate students.
