The department is internationally recognized in several areas of research. The research activities of the faculty are broadly categorized into two areas: lifespan physiology and stress physiology. Those faculty studying lifespan physiology address questions related to reproduction, development and aging. In contrast, those faculty studying stress physiology answer questions about the adaptations exhibited by the human body when its integrity is challenged by stress.
The Department of Integrative Physiology offers a variety of graduate study opportunities that range from a courseworkonly option to a researchintensive option. To facilitate maximal flexibility in the design of a student's program, the department has established a minimum number of required courses that must be completed by all graduate students and the remainder of the program can be individualized to meet the longterm goals of the student. A graduate degree in integrative physiology provides opportunities for careers in academia, industry and the health professions.
The graduate degrees offered are concurrent bachelor’s/master’s degrees (BA/MS), a Master of Science degree (MS) and a Doctor of Philosophy degree (PhD). The concurrent BA and MS degree program is a fiveyear program of study. Interested students should attend the informational meeting in the fall of their junior year. The program is structured to ensure that students finish both degrees within the fiveyear period.
