Pathobiology Concentration

The Pathobiology concentration focuses on the underlying mechanisms of disease and provides students with the unique option to gain in-depth training in pathogenesis. The four required courses provide students with a foundation in cell and microbiology, as well as an understanding of how microorganisms contribute to disease and how the body works to prevent disease and infection. There are no focus areas in this concentration; however, students can take electives in more advanced courses in pathobiology. This concentration will prepare students for careers in public health, medicine, and industry, and for further research into the mechanisms underlying disease.
