Graduate Students

Graduate students work with Professor Michael Dawson in lab

The School of Natural Sciences sets a new standard for graduate studies in the modern age. Our individualized graduate groups are led by energetic faculty with a passion for interdisciplinary research and academic exploration. We have cutting-edge masters and doctoral programs as well as distinctive emphases within the Individual Graduate Program (IGP).

As a graduate student, you aren't merely a number. You are valued as a critical member of a small, tightly knit lab where everyone — faculty, postdocs and students — works together in an informal atmosphere conducive to professional growth and the generation of new ideas. We offer competitive financial support and resources to our graduate students, which can come in the form of fellowships, teaching assistantships (TA), and graduate student researcher (GSR) assistantships.
