Accelerated Master's Program in Biology

What do I major in?

Incoming students are often unsure which major to pursue (especially difficult may be the decision to pursue the BA or BS degree). Therefore, we recommend that such students initially begin with the Biology BA degree program. Students can easily switch anytime during their first several semesters with the aid of their academic advisors.

A master's degree in Biology can be earned in a shortened time by careful planning in the junior and senior years of Biology BS majors at UVM. Students should discuss this possibility with the Department graduate program director and/or their advisor as soon as they think they might be interested in the program. The MS can typically be earned in one additional year.

Certain eligibilities apply. Find out the requirements for pursuing the Accelerated Master's Program in the UVM Catalogue.
