Master of Science in Biology

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the closure of some academic testing sites, the School of Biological Sciences at Louisiana Tech University will temporarily waive the GRE requirements for the applications to the Master of Science in Biology program for the Summer and Fall 2020 terms.  For those requesting a GRE waiver, a minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.0 (unconditional admission) or GPA of 2.75 (conditional admission) will be required prior to consideration of the applications.  The amended policy will remain in effect through August 1, 2020.

Please contact Dr. Bill Campbell at campbell@latech.edu or (318) 257-4573 with questions.

The master’s program in Biology offers students the option to complete a thesis or the non-thesis track.

 

As part of the Master’s Programs in Biology, graduate students are required to take the course BISC 535: Current Topics in Biological Sciences. The topics for this class vary by quarter as does the professor teaching the course. upcoming topics are:

  • Fall 2019 – Speciation – Dr. Shepard
  • Winter 2020 – Reactive Oxygen Species: Cell Signaling or Cell Death – Dr. Hindmarsh
  • Spring 2020 – Space Biology – Dr. Vandenbrink

Master of Science in Molecular Science and Nanotechnology

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the closure of some academic testing sites, the School of Biological Sciences at Louisiana Tech University will temporarily waive the GRE requirements for the applications to the Master of Science and PhD in Molecular Science and Nanotechnology (MSNT) programs for the Summer and Fall 2020 terms. For those requesting a GRE waiver, a minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.0 (MS) or GPA of 3.2 (PhD) will be required prior to consideration of the applications. The amended policy will remain in effect through August 1, 2020.
