5th Year Master’s Degree Program in Pathobiology
Brown undergraduate students may apply to the Graduate School for admission to the 5th Year Master’s Degree Program in Pathobiology. The student is expected to complete a minimum of eight total credits, of which no more than 3 shall be research credits, and at least 5 shall be didactic, advanced graduate classroom courses. Of the five didactic graduate classes, two may have been taken to fulfill the concentration requirements of both the graduate and undergraduate degree from the recommended course list below. Courses may be substituted with prior approval of the Program Directors. BIOL 2860 and BIOL 2980 are required.
It is expected that all coursework will be completed in the two semesters immediately following the undergraduate degree. Students successfully completing the required graduate coursework with a grade of ‘B’ or higher will be awarded a Master’s of Arts degree in Pathobiology.
This program is open only to Brown University undergraduates.
