Enrollment in the dual-title degree program should be completed when students and their advisers decide that they should join the program and must apply so that they are accepted into the program before the end of the student’s fourth semester.

Students should consult with their major adviser about applying to the dual-title program.

Submit the application form and a one- to two-page statement of interest in pursuing the Microbiome Sciences Dual-Title Degree to the Microbiome Sciences Graduate Program Administrator. This statement should describe your academic background, research and career interests, and how your dissertation research can help advance the field of Microbiome Sciences.

You and your adviser and your Microbiome Sciences co-adviser (if needed) should sign the application. However, it is not necessary to have a co-adviser identified at the time of application. The form will also need to be signed by the Head of your Graduate Program.
