Graduate School Basics

How can you locate graduate schools in your field of interest?  One way is simply doing subject searches on the internet.  You can narrow your focus based on the type of graduate degree you seek (e.g., molecular biology or ecology). You can also do searches by way of Peterson's Grad School Search Tool and the Biology Graduate Programs & Schools website. One of the most effective ways to locate potential graduate programs and a future graduate advisor is to ask members of the UNCP Biology faculty. 

If you're interested in teaching at the community college level, consider the graduate program in the UNCP Department of Biology.
