Many students choose to complete the Biology coterminal MS program in order to:
gain more research experience than is attainable during their undergraduate program
focus on coursework in specific sub-areas of biology
broaden exposure to biology in order to prepare for fields such as teaching, consulting, etc
The Coterminal Masters Program is only open to current Stanford students. Non-Biology majors are welcome to apply, but may be required to complete specific prerequisite courses.
Please note: students currently enrolled in graduate programs at Stanford University are eligible to apply to the Biology MS program through a Graduate Authorization petition. Interested students should contact the Student Services staff in Gilbert 108.
