Opportunities for graduate students
The Department of Biology at Case Western Reserve University is an excellent place to earn a graduate degree. Our department continues to grow, and we are an interactive, engaging and collegial group. We have several nearby research facilities for conducting local field experiments and observational studies including the University Farm and the Holden Arboretum. A number of additional universities in the area including John Carroll University, Kent State University and Ohio State University provide further opportunities for collaboration. And Cleveland is an exciting place to live—a fantastic music, food, and art scene!
