Reproductive Physiology

The Reproductive Physiology program differs from most graduate programs at WVU in several ways. First, it is an interdisciplinary doctoral program. The preparation of an M.S. thesis is considered an important component of earning the Ph.D. degree, because writing skills have become so integral to success in a scientific career. Thus the M.S. is integral to the doctoral program, not a separate program. Students may enter the program with an M.S. from another institution or another program at WVU, or may enter with a B.S. and complete an M.S. en route to the Ph.D.

The program remains small, by design, but demand for our graduates is strong.

Career Profile

The emphasis of the program is to provide a high-quality apprenticeship in research in reproductive biology. Many of our doctoral graduates have gone directly into academic positions or research roles in government or industry without the necessity for postdoctoral education.
