Biology Scholars Plan-Linked B.S.-M.S.
Solve Challenges in Human, Animal and Environmental Health
If you’re interested in the study of life processes in all living things, from their molecular composition and function to their interaction with the environment, the Biology Scholar Plan from University of Houston-Clear Lake combines undergraduate and graduate coursework in a competitive environment. The Biology Scholars Plan combines the B.S. degree plan in Biology with M.S. degree plans in Biology or Biotechnology with the intention of allowing highly motivated and qualified students to complete both the B.S. and M.S. degrees in biology in a timely and cost efficient manner.
Combine Scientific Theory with Hands-on Lab and Field Experience
Your coursework in the Scholars Plan will give help you acquire the discipline and
rigor needed to take on an independent role in research. You are expected to begin
a graduate research project early in your studies. After admission to the Scholars
Plan and successful completion of the B.S. degree in Biology, the Biology Program
Graduate Admissions committee will consider waiving the Graduate Record Examination
(GRE) requirement for admission into the Biology Graduate Program.
