Integrative Genomics Certificate (Online)
Integrative Genomics Graduate Certificate: an interface between Biology and computational sciences
Study in this area is growing and is at the forefront of cutting-edge research.
Students in this graduate certificate program will learn new techniques and applications of current biotechnology databases to DNA and protein analysis. These techniques allow the study of disease at the cellular and molecular level.
Students who would benefit from this program are in industry and research, or teach Biology. For teachers, exposure to this area of science would keep them current in these fields as well as better prepare their students for college, or upper-level courses.
- Graduate admission application and nonrefundable application fee
- A baccalaureate degree in Biology or related field (ex: cell biology, ecology, marine biology, genetics, zoology, plant biology, evolutionary biology, microbiology) from a regionally accredited institution. If the degree is not in Biology, transcripts must reflect a B or better for a minimum of four Biology lab courses
- Sealed official transcripts of all undergraduate work from all colleges attended (minimum GPA of 3.0)
- Two letters recommending the candidate for graduate work at University of Saint Joseph from individuals who can comment cogently upon the ability of the candidate to perform in graduate studies
- A letter of intent stating the reason for wanting the degree or certificate, the courses of interest, possible transfer courses to be brought into the program, and what the student will be bringing to the program
- Planned program of study
- If the GPA is borderline, the student must submit a 600-word essay with appropriate citations on a science topic of applicant's choice.
- Note: We no longer require the GREs for matriculation
Note: Matriculated students have priority to register for courses during the registration period.
Financial aid is only available to students who are formally accepted and matriculated.
