Key Features

Students of the Microbiology program at University of Arizona will develop a broad academic foundation with a concentration in at least one science discipline. The general focus will be on microbiology and microbial pathogens of domestic animals and humans, with an emphasis on infectious diseases and host responses. Graduates will find employment in academic, government, and private institutions. 

Admission to the program is linked to a commitment by a Microbiology faculty member to mentor the student and assure adequate support for the student to successfully complete the degree.  Therefore, Microbiology graduate 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.
