PhD in Molecular Bioscience at Montana State University American Consortium of Universities (INTERLINK)
The Molecular Biosciences Program offers an interdisciplinary program towards a Doctorate in Philosophy in the Life Sciences. Students in the MBSP program are able to pursue research across department boundaries, before selecting a specific area of study at the end of the first year.
This program allows graduate students to rotate in three different laboratories during their first year, within their chosen area of research. By the end of the first year, they must select a research advisor and be formally admitted to a department to conduct a research project leading to the completion of a Doctorate of Philosophy.
