Tuition Fee: $10,063 per semester
Location: Tucson, United States

The Genetics GIDP from University of Arizona contributes to the recruitment and training of next generation researchers.

A goal is to integrate computational approaches (Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics and Engineering) and basic life sciences (Biology: Molecular, Cellular, Evolutionary, Genetics, Neuroscience, Cancer etc.).

Educational Opportunity

In addition to the traditionally trained biology student, the Genetics program seeks to recruit students with undergraduate degrees in Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics and Engineering and train them in life sciences. This program transcends the barriers normally set by department affiliations and traditional disciplines.

Program Structure

  • Students must maintain a grade point average of 3.00 (letter grade of B) or better to receive financial support and to be awarded a Ph.D. degree. All students in the Doctoral degree program are also expected to comply with the regulations of the Graduate College with respect to residence, credit hour requirements, and the qualifying and comprehensive examinations (please refer to the Graduate College Policies for more information).

“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?”​
