Students choosing a non-thesis option are required to take a minimum of 12 credit hours of laboratory course work in addition to a written comprehensive exam. The purpose of the comprehensive examination is to assess the candidate’s understanding of his/her course work and to evaluate the ability of the candidate to synthesize research and theory in the field of cellular and molecular biology and to present this information in an effective written format.
At the University of New Haven, we provide world-class career preparation in all of our programs, but our overarching goal is to prepare students to lead meaningful lives.
Through our courses in the arts, humanities, and sciences we cultivate our students’ humanity; and by integrating experiential learning in our academic programs – through such areas of emphasis as community service, internships, student-faculty research, and student self-governance – we prepare our students for leadership in their careers and as members of a democratic society.

Federal Direct Graduate Plus Loan - A credit based federal loan where the student is the borrower. Students may borrow up to the Cost of Attendance minus any financial aid the student is receiving. A credit-worthy endorser (co-signer) may be required by the lender. Students must first have their eligibility determined for the Federal Direct Student Loan before borrowing the Graduate PLUS loan.
Private Alternative Loans - These are private credit based loans where the student is the borrower and may require a credit worthy co-signer. Students should maximize their federal loan eligibility before applying for a private loan.
