Masters Degree in Integrative Genomics

Plan of Study


During the first year, the student will select an adviser, form a graduate committee, and submit the Plan of Study to be approved by the committee. The Plan of Study will be written either in the format of a focused review article or a proposal for funding. The committee must include the student’s major adviser, at least one other faculty member from the Integrative Genomics program, and a third member, which could include another faculty from the Integrative Genomics program or another appropriate faculty member from another academic institution, such as South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (SDSMT), or department.
