For a MS thesis, graduate students conduct research under the guidance of a biology faculty advisor. Thesis research projects focus on questions specific to each faculty member’s research lab. 

The Adkins Fund of the Department of Biology provides $3,600 for summer salary grants for MS graduate students conducting research.  

The department also provides up to $1,300 for travel expenses for graduate students to present their research at scientific meetings.
