Department of Biological Sciences DEGREE PROGRAMS CURRICULUM DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY IN BIOLOGY Introduction The Mindanao State University has long been recognized as the premier university in the Southern Philippines. The various curricula offered by its seven autonomous campuses sufficiently provide an answer to the varied manpower needs of the Mindanao-Sulu-Palawan (MISUPALA) Region. MSU-Iligan Institute of Technology, in particular, has been identified as a center of excellence in various disciplines of science and technology. As such, it is expected to continuously provide training development of manpower resources in the region through its undergraduate and graduate programs. The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) through the Mindanao Advanced Education Project (MAEP) identified MSU-IIT as a graduate center for several disciplines in the area of the sciences including biology. Geared towards substantial improvement in the manpower capability in the college/graduate levels in various institutions in Mindanao, MAEP provides financial assistance and scholarships to some faculty members from these institutions to pursue advanced degrees, either M.S. or Ph.D. At present, MSU-IIT in consortium with MSU-Marawi, is offering the M.S Biology program. Considering the strong faculty profile, adequate laboratory and library facilities of the Department of Biological Sciences in both campuses, it is deemed appropriate that the university through MSU-Iligan Institute of Technology (MSU-IIT) will offer the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Biology with majors in Molecular Biology, Microbiology, Genetics and Environmental Biology. In doing so, the Mindanao State University can answer the demand for advanced training in teaching and research capabilities in the region. Objectives Envisioned to develop the manpower resources in the MINSUPALA Region, the Ph.D. (Biology) program
