Biological Sciences Programs Overview
Our understanding of cellular and molecular systems is increasing at a breakneck pace. So is the demand for professionals trained in manipulating genes, cells, and their products in technical and research environments.
The University of the Sciences in Philadelphia prepares you for success in your career.
Our biological science graduate degree and certificate programs offer the in-depth knowledge that private-sector companies and public-sector laboratories seek. Your degree can also lead you to advanced training in medicine or other scientific disciplines.
Few comparable institutions can match our level of individual attention or the hands-on, practical experiences we offer with relevant techniques and technologies. We also offer an integrated BS/MS or BS/PhD degree program. With careful planning you may have the ability to obtain your MS degree in less time than a traditional program.
