In microbiology courses you will learn about many ways in which microorganisms are essential for the survival of all living organisms. A variety of topics, ranging from the analysis of molecules -- protein structure and function; the structure, organization, and expression of genes -- to the analysis of whole organisms -- biodegradation and biotransformation -- will demonstrate the importance of microorganisms in the environment.We offer you a dynamic graduate and postgraduate program in microbiology, a program that prepares students for a career in research and teaching. You will be encouraged to work independently and creatively, to think critically, and to reach your full potential both professionally and personally.
Weekly department lab meetings provide a relaxed, highly interactive setting in which you can follow work being done in all of the various research labs in the department.
