Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

.  Students will develop a broad academic foundation with a concentration in at least one science discipline. 

 The ACBS faculty members constitute the core Micro faculty, however there are faculty members in other UA departments who have academic credentials and interests appropriate to the Micro Graduate Program that also participate as Micro faculty.  

Admission to the Microbiology Program at University of Arizona  is linked to a commitment by a Micro faculty member to mentor the student and assure adequate support for the student to successfully complete his/her degree. 

 Therefore Micro students have the advantage of a designated graduate advisor from the outset.  Limited numbers of Graduate Assistantships are available through the School of Animal and Comparative Biomedical Sciences and the Soil Water and Environmental Sciences and Plant Sciences Departments to supplement support for Micro students.

Department

The School of Animal and Comparative Biomedical Sciences (ACBS) brings together animal scientists, veterinarians, microbiologists and others to offer the strongest possible programs in research, education and outreach. This school was formed in order to offer more integrated research and educational opportunities in the animal and biomedical sciences.

Programme Structure

The Plan of Study identifies

  •  courses the student intends to transfer from other institutions;
  • courses already completed at the University of Arizona which the student intends to apply toward the graduate degree; and
  •  additional course work to be completed to fulfill degree requirements
