Admissions & Aid
As a graduate student, you are interested in continuing your studies in biology—a huge and diverse area of human knowledge that includes everything from the behavior that codes genetic information to enormous ecosystems that cover the surface of our planet.
Our Department of Biology offers numerous courses and programs of study that reflect the wide range and depth of options in the discipline. Areas of research include the behavior and evolution of marine animals, the production of biofuels, cell growth and cancer, meiosis, bioinformatics, and the interaction between microbes and their hosts in both health and disease. Students have the opportunity to carry out their thesis research in one of our many research laboratories.
Brooklyn College Biology faculty mentor Ph.D. students through the CUNY Graduate Center. Faculty participate in a variety of graduate programs in biochemistry and biology, including the Ecology, Evolution and Behavior (EEB), Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology (MCD), Neuroscience (NS), and Plant Science (PS) subprograms. Contact individual faculty for more information on research opportunities.
