Applicants who have not completed all requirements for admission to the degree program may be permitted to enroll in classes for credit on a nonmatriculated or nondegree basis.
Students who select the research and thesis option must declare their intent before registering beyond 15 credits and must begin preliminary work with a mentor. Students electing the research and thesis option must complete the 6-credit sequence consisting of:
The thesis topic must be presented to and approved by the graduate faculty. The thesis must be written in the prescribed form and submitted for review by members of the graduate faculty. A thesis defense must be scheduled and the thesis successfully defended as a requirement of graduation.
Senior undergraduate students with a 3.00 grade point ratio (GPR) may take graduate courses for undergraduate credit with permission of the instructor.
This curriculum is designed to enable biology graduate students to have a concentration in the business areas of either management, marketing or finance.
The same 20-credit requirement as for the Master of Science degree in biology and 12 credits of business courses taken as a unit concentration. Courses may not be selected at random from the three areas of concentration. An adviser from the College of Business Administration must be consulted.
For those allied health professionals interested in teaching in their professions, FDU offers a BS in biology with an education concentration. A master's student would take at least 21 graduate credits in biology and at least 12 credits in education.
