Biophysics Graduate Program (BIPH)

Students in the biophysics graduate program use theoretical and computational methods in combination with cutting-edge experimental techniques to solve some of the outstanding problems at the intersection of the physical and life sciences. [Learn more]


Entomology Graduate Program (ENTM)

Students in the entomology graduate program focus on a number of areas: agricultural pest management; ecology/biological control; evolutionary biology; freshwater and estuarine entomology; insect pathology; molecular biology, physiology, and molecular genetics; organic agriculture; pesticide technology, assessment and policy; systematics/morphology; and urban, structural and green industries pest management.

Marine Estuarine Environmental Sciences Graduate Program (MEES)

Students in the MEES program have diverse interests that span the environmental sciences, irrespective of habitat, and generally center on some aspect of the interaction between biological, physical and/or chemical systems in the environment. [Learn more]


Neuroscience and Cognitive Science program (NACS)

Students in the NACS program receive cutting-edge interdisciplinary graduate training in seven research focus areas: cellular and molecular, cognition and emotion, computational modeling and theory, development and aging, disorders and treatment, language and speech, and sensory and motor systems.
