Immunology & Infection Plan of Study
Over a 2-year (4-semester) period, students are expected to fulfill all requirements of the M.S. in Immunology & Infection Program. Each semester will include a minimum of 8.0 credit hours, approximately 32 credit hours for the entire program.
Year 1: Students must enroll in all required courses and maintain a grade point average at or above 3.0 for all class work. In addition, in order to maintain satisfactory research/academic progress, students are required, prior to the end of the Year 1 Fall semester, to identify and engage a faculty member in the program who will serve as the student’s Research Advisor.
Year 2: Students must perform original research in the laboratory of their Research Advisors. Guidance and evaluation of research progress will be aided by a Research Supervising Committee. This committee, together with the Research Advisor will determine if the thesis research is adequate for granting the M.S. degree. This decision is confirmed by a public presentation of the thesis research and a closed-door oral defense of the thesis for the benefit of the Research Supervising Committee.
