Walker, Program Director Professor Ph.D., University of Tennessee at Knoxville Ray S. Williams, Assistant Chair and Associate Professor Ph.D., University of South Carolina The Department of Biology offers the Master of Science in Biology (207A/ ). The graduate program is designed to prepare men and women for competitive careers in the field of biology, including environmental jobs and teaching and re positions, while also preparing students for further graduate and professional work at doctoral levels. Our program provides students with a comprehensive knowledge of the broad fields in biology while allowing specialization in an area of their choice. In recent years, the Graduate Program in Biology has been twice named the Outstanding Graduate Program at Appalachian State University, and a number of graduate students have been awarded grants or scholarships for their proposed and ongoing re. Several students from Biology have been selected to receive thesis and re awards from the Cratis D. Williams Graduate School.
