Graduate Program - Overview

The Florida State University Department of Biological Science offers Masters and Doctoral degree training in a broad range of biological research areas. The graduate is organized into three divisions, Cell and Molecular Biology, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, and Neuroscience; each division conducts its own admissions and guides its students to the completion of their degrees.

Students are selected from a competitive applicant pool with Thesis-M.S. and Ph.D. students supported for the duration of their studies with stipends and tuition waivers. During their training, students have access to excellent laboratory research facilities and opportunities for field and marine studies. Recent graduates of the program have been very successful in obtaining academic, research, industrial, and professional positions nationally and internationally. We strongly encourage direct contact between potential applicants and individual faculty in the program to explore mutual interests in research training opportunities.
