Graduate Programs with Biology Education Research

There are many pathways to graduate degree in science education research at Purdue.

Graduate programs are also available for students in Biotechnology and Bioinformatics in the College of Technology.

Students who would like to gain experience in Life Science Education Research can do so through PIBERG. First year students are welcome to rotate with PIBERG faculty. Graduate students further along in their respective programs are encouraged to participate in auxiliary projects to further the discipline and their knowledge of education research. These credentials have helped students gain employment by indicating a strong foundation in education. 

For further information about pathways to graduate degree programs associated with PIBERG, go to the Biological Sciences website.
