Degrees Offered

  • Master of Science with a major in Animal Physiology

Degree Description

The master of science in animal physiology in the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design allows maximum flexibility in courses and research problems. They may work with beef and dairy cattle; sheep, swine, poultry, or laboratory animals. Research problems in farm animals and laboratory animals form the basis for many studies, but a comparative approach is emphasized. A master of science degree is available as a thesis or coursework option.  For additional information, contact Dr. Robert L. Taylor, Jr., at (304) 293-2631 or Bob.Taylor@mail.wvu.edu.

Admissions

Requirements are similar to those in other biological sciences. The student should have completed basic courses in the physical and biological sciences, including genetics, nutrition, and physiology. Deficiencies may prolong the time needed to complete degree programs.

Applications must be submitted by October 15 for fall semester and March 15 for spring semester for the M. S. in Animal Physiology.  A composite graduate record examination score of 1,000 or better will be considered as a basis for admission. Meeting the above requirements shall not guarantee the applicant admission since each professor will accept only the number of students that can be supervised adequately with available facilities, time, and funds.

A candidate for the M.S. degree in Animal Physiology must meet all University, College, Division, and Program requirements as outlined in the WVU Graduate Catalog.

Program Requirements

All M.S. degree candidates are required to follow a planned program of study. The student develops the plan of study during their first year in the program in conjunction with the graduate committee. The plan must be approved by the Director of the Division and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs of the Davis College.

Thesis option: The thesis option will require 30 credit hours, 24 hours of regular course work plus 6 hours credit for a thesis. A student must maintain a grade point average of 3.0 or better to remain in good standing. There will be a common core curriculum for the two majors. All additional course requirements will be determined by the student in consultation with the major advisor and graduate committee members.

Non-Thesis option: The non-thesis option will require 36 hours of course work. A student must maintain a grade point average of 3.0 or better to remain in good standing. There will be a common core curriculum for the non-thesis masters. Additional courses to meet the degree requirements will be determined by the student in consultation with the major advisor and the graduate committee members and presented in the student’s Plan of Study.

Students in the MS- Thesis Option will be required to complete a thesis. They may identify a problem for study on their own, with approval from their graduate committee or they may work on a faculty member’s research study. The scope of the research problem must be approved by the student’s graduate committee. Students are required to defend their thesis in an open seminar presentation. Students in either the thesis or the non-thesis option must pass an oral examination to be approved for graduation.

A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 is required in all courses applied toward degree requirements.
