The MS in Natural Sciences is a flexible graduate program that offers students the option of combining one area of natural science with graduate course work in a variety of related disciplines. Fields of study available to students in this program include Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Geology, Mathematics and Physics.
The specific program of study for each student is determined in consultation with the Director and faculty advisor. Students are required to complete 33 credit hours of graduate level work consisting of:
Generally, a maximum of six credit hours of course work offered in Social Sciences, Humanities or through the Graduate School of Education, the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, the School of Public Health and Health Professions, the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, and the Graduate Division of Roswell Park Cancer Institute, may be applied to this program.
The final project – a research project and written report – offers students an opportunity to demonstrate how their primary discipline was enriched by multiple perspectives. The research project must be written under the supervision of the student’s faculty advisor and approved by one other faculty member with expertise in the area of the candidate’s work.
