Graduate Programs

We offer programs leading to the master's (MS) and doctoral (PhD) degrees (see http://www.plantbio.ohiou.edu/index.php/grad/). Our graduate program represents a unique combination of broad training and concentration within four research focus groups: Eastern Deciduous Forest Ecology, Evolutionary Developmental Plant Biology, Phylogenetic Systematics, and Plant Cell Wall Biotechnology. If you're interested in interdisciplinary studies, our faculty participate in the Master of Science in Environmental Studies (MSES) program, the master's and doctoral programs in Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB), and the Center for Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB). We offer financial aid in the form of tuition remission, teaching assistantships (TAs), graduate assistantships (GAs) and research assistantships (RAs) for qualified applicants. We urge you to e-mail faculty you'd like to work with to discuss applying to our programs. If you have questions about our programs, please visit our departmental web site (http://www.plantbio.ohiou.edu/) or e-mail us at plantbio@ohio.edu or call Dr. Allan Showalter, Graduate Chair, at 740-593-1135.
