Master of Arts in Biological Sciences

The masters of arts (M.A.) in biological sciences provides a solid foundation in biological theory to supplement careers in business, law, education or public health. Some students choose an M.A. in biology when contemplating a career change. The M.A. in biology can also be a springboard to medical school or an advanced graduate program.

Fulfillment of the course requirements for an M.A. in biology can be accomplished in two years, but this plan of study is also appropriate for those who need a flexible course load to balance family or work.
