Miami University received final approval from the Ohio Board of Regents to add two new graduate programs—a doctoral-level program in ecology, evolutionary and environmental biology (EEEB), and a master’s/doctoral-level program in cellular, molecular and structural biology (CMSB). Both programs will begin accepting students in the fall of 2010.
“These new graduate programs draw on the strength of multiple departments to create an innovative interdisciplinary approach,” said Bruce Cochrane, dean of Miami’s Graduate School.
The EEEB program will be composed of five participating departments: botany, geography, geology, microbiology and zoology. The new program better reflects students’ academic training and dissertation research by building on the strengths in these areas.
The CMSB program will involve faculty members from four departments: botany, chemistry and biochemistry, microbiology, and zoology. Graduate students will have the ability to use resources from the various departments in their academic and dissertation work. The CMSB program will allow students to comprehend the molecular mechanisms involved in controlling and settling cellular metabolism, biosynthesis, and function.
Currently, Miami’s graduate program offers students master’s degrees in over 50 academic subjects and 12 areas of studies in doctoral degrees. Each of the university’s graduate programs provides a valuable academic experience, active and attainable faculty, and state of the art resources.
