Molecular Sciences

A doctorate degree is also called a PhD, or Doctor of Philosophy. The name can be misleading, as most doctoral students do not study philosophy. Instead, the degree indicates the highest level of study in any field, from mathematics to literature. A PhD is the culmination of one’s academic career and indicates that the graduate has achieved an expert degree of knowledge and contributed to the field in new and novel ways.

What is a PhD in Molecular Sciences? This is an intensive program in which the student undertakes advanced study of the tiny units of matter called molecules. It spans both chemical and biological sciences as it explores how molecular processes shape the world around us. Most doctoral programs require participants to complete a doctoral dissertation before graduation. This capstone project includes a lengthy written portion that details independent and original research conducted by the student that contributes to the field in some meaningful way.

Earning a PhD in Molecular Science can have many benefits. On a personal level, it is a fascinating field of study that challenges the mind and can foster sophisticated reasoning skills. On a professional level, it can open the doors to many career opportunities.

The cost of a PhD program can vary widely, depending on the institution one chooses to attend. Prospective students should contact institutions directly with questions regarding tuition and program specifics.

Many graduates of a PhD program choose to pursue a career in academics. They may join the faculty of universities as full-time teachers, imparting their knowledge to graduate and undergraduate students while continuing to pursue individual research and publication in scientific journals. Other graduates may pursue careers in biotechnology or biochemistry, particularly in public and private research labs. Nontraditional careers might include work in science writing, science policy or medical illustration.

A PhD often takes several years to complete, but the rewards can be well worth the effort. Search for your program below and contact the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
