“ The MS Biology program at Roosevelt was instrumental in my decision to go into academia. Every part of the curriculum was designed to have a practical research component. It really painted a clear picture of what to expect in a PhD program or a career in research. Also, holding classes at night or during the weekend allowed for a manageable schedule, ultimately making my choice to attend Roosevelt an easy one!”
