Degree Requirements

The Ph.D. program at UMKC is interdisciplinary. Students interested in studies at the doctoral level in the disciplines of cell biology and biophysics, or molecular biology and biochemistry, should apply to the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in the School of Graduate Studies. Students interested in a combination of cell biology and biophysics with molecular biology and biochemistry should apply to our graduate programs at http://sbs.umkc.edu/graduate_application.cfm or by writing to the mailing address at the beginning of this section.

Detailed information on the general and discipline-specific admission requirements for the Ph.D. is found in the School of Graduate Studies section of this catalog, with specific details on the school's Web site at http://www.umkc.edu/iphd.

Students pursuing Interdisciplinary Ph.D. studies who have selected cell biology and biophysics, or molecular biology and biochemistry as one of their disciplines should consult the School of Graduate Studies section of this catalog for degree requirements and other academic regulations applicable to their degree program.
