General Student Resources
- Semester Term Information (Course Schedules, Deadlines, Etc.)
- Montclair State University Student Resources (Just about everything!)
- The Graduate School at Montclair State University
As a student in our department, you have many opportunities to pursue independent scientific research with faculty members. For graduate students, this may take place in the form of BIOL 599 (Introduction to Biological Research) or a MS Thesis (BIOL 698).
The first step is to find out what faculty members are doing research that is exciting to you. This website is a good place to start - each faculty member has a web page that describes their research and publications. Contact and visit those faculty members you find interesting - you might get a chance to conduct exciting new experiments!
Academic Dishonesty Policy
The Department of Biology and Molecular Biology considers academic dishonesty a serious offense. All students should be familiar with the university policies on academic dishonesty described in the University Code of Conduct.
