Earth and Planetary Sciences

Program Description

Earth and Planetary Sciences studies range from the deep Earth (seismology) to the Earth's surface (including geology, oceanography, and environmental impacts), to the planets and moons.  We combine field and remote studies with state-of-the-art analytical and statistical methods to provide new insights into the past, present, and future of our planet.  Our graduates work in academia, environmental firms, oil and gas companies, government, and NGOs, bringing analytical skills learned to new problems.

Nursing

Program Description

With Ph.D. classes meeting once a week, our class schedule is designed to support students' home and work commitments. All classes except electives/cognates are held in person at our Newark campus on Tuesdays.

Depending on where students are on their professional and academic journey, we offer two pathways for earning the PhD: post-master’s and post-bachelor’s.

Molecular Biology, Genetics & Cancer

Program Description

The MBGC Track includes the disciplines of Molecular Biology, Molecular Genetics, and Cancer, as well as Biochemistry, Radiation Biology, Structural Biology, and Bioinformatics. These disciplines encompass a set of complementary approaches to life processes. The training received will expand the students' capacity for scholarly activity and independent creative thinking. The MBGC Track emphasizes practical preparation for scientific careers in both academia and industry.
