Graduate Studies Biology

The Department of Biology at Austin Peay State University (APSU) has a graduate program leading to the Master of Science in Biology. 

The Graduate Program in Biology provides: experiences in graduate level coursework, a foundation course in research methodology (technical writing, statistics, computer technology), a Spring Seminar series, and research experience (Plans II and III) with three different options (I - Coursework, II - Research Paper, and III - Thesis) directed by a graduate committee (major professor and two other graduate faculty).

The research experience culminates in an oral presentation to the students and faculty of the Department of Biology at APSU and a written document approved by the student's graduate committee and the Graduate School. During the last semester of residence, students are required to take an oral examination.
