This Microbiology program from University of Arizona prepares you to apply systems thinking and develop solutions to protect our planet and its inhabitants from microbial threats. Microbiologists explore the diversity of microbial life and examine what allows some organisms to live in symbiotic relationship with the host organisms while others cause disease.
Specialization in the field of microbiology encompasses the study of the fundamental processes of bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites, as well as the study of host defense systems that counter microbial infection. Our Microbiology degree is ideal for students pursuing careers in medicine, veterinary care and scientific research and/or healthcare fields.
- Pathogenic Bacteriology
- Mechanisms of Disease
- Medical and Molecular Virology
“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”
