About the Doctoral Program

In the doctoral program of the Department of Molecular Genetics, Biochemistry and Microbiology, academic requirements are divided into two areas: course work and dissertation research studies.

Students typically complete all necessary course work during Years 1 and 2 to allow them to focus their time on research during the remainder of their graduate studies.

Students should anticipate the completion of their graduate work in about five years of full-time study.

The minimum requirement for a doctoral degree from the University of Cincinnati is three years of full-time graduate study.

Eligibility for graduation requires a minimum of 90 graduate credits, the last 30 of which must be completed at the University of Cincinnati.
