Clemson University offers both PhD and MS degrees in Biological Science. The Biological Sciences program encompasses a wide variety of disciplines in both plant and animal biology. Three major emphasis areas are identified within these degree programs: Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Cell and Developmental Biology, Comparative Organismal Biology.
The department emphasizes basic, discovery-based scholarship. Many of the faculty are involved in research that will improve biomedical technology or lead to better environmental conservation and management practices. They work at research sites and with collaborators here at Clemson, around the Southeast, and across the nation and internationally as well.
