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 graduate courses from the recommended course list below. Two of these courses may have been taken to fulfill the concentration requirements of the undergraduate degree. Of the eight courses, 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.
