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 and statistics), a Spring Seminar series, and two different plans of study (I - Coursework and III - Thesis).

The Plan III (Thesis) culminates in an oral presentation to the students and faculty of the Department of Biology and a written Thesis approved by the student's graduate committee and the Graduate School. During the last semester of residence, Plan III (Thesis) students are required to take an oral examination.
