Student Opportunities OverviewStudents, both graduates and undergraduates, have many different opportunities for research, learning, and even funding within and outside the Biology Department. This overview might help you find the option that best fits your needs.
Graduate students who would like to pursue a thesis option PhD or Masters degree are required to list their three top options of PIs in their applications to the department (find the application packet HERE). If, however, a student is pursuing a non-thesis masters degree, acceptance into a lab somewhat works the same way as for undergraduates (see above).
Finally, there are several research programs for undergraduates available at New Mexico State University. These programs encourage students to work in a certain field and prepare students for future carreers or further study. Please see the list of programs available HERE.
