Interdisciplinary Program in Biological Sciences


Donald R. Hoffman, Interim Program Director

The interdisciplinary program in biological sciences brings together students and faculty from multiple disciplines to study a broad variety of interesting biological phenomena. The interdisciplinary program is 59-66 s.h., including 11-12 s.h. from the general and molecular/cellular core curricula, at least 30 s.h. from the research core and at least 18 s.h. from a specific concentration. The concentrations are: biology; biomedical science; and pharmaceutical chemistry. Other appropriate graduate-level courses may be added by agreement of the research advisor, graduate program director, and the IDPBS advisory committee.
