We offer both research and non-research based degrees. Our primary goal is towards
research training; students pursuing a research based path earn either Ph.D. or M.S.
degrees. Students achieving Ph.D. degrees typically continue on as postdoctoral fellows
on a career track directed towards academic research and teaching or industrial research.
For detailed program information including curriculum and requirements, please view

academic programs and regulations.
The Graduate Association of Biological Sciences
The Graduate Association of Biological Sciences (GABS) is the representative body
for graduate students in the Biological Sciences Department at UofSC and actively
seeks to enrich the graduate school experience for students in the Department. GABS
does this by hosting departmental seminar speakers, conducting weekly informal lunchtime
seminars, organizing a symposium-style scientific retreat at the coast during the
spring semester as well as several social activities throughout the school year that
foster a sense of community among the graduate students who represent the diverse
research interests of the department. Find more about it here!
