Dual Title PhD in Microbiome Sciences

Microbiome Sciences at Penn State

The program enables students to learn about perspectives, techniques, and methodological approaches in the field of Microbiome Science, while maintaining a close association with major program areas of study.

The Microbiome Sciences Dual-Title Graduate Program (established in 2022) was a transformational outcome of the Penn State One Health Microbiome Center's curricular goals. This program will provide students with the intellectual foundation for integrated and mechanistic understanding of relationships within and beyond microbiomes.

Interdisciplinary training across Microbiome Sciences will prepare students for this rapidly growing research area in academia and government. It will also prepare students for a wide array of research careers in the private sector, including medical, agricultural, and environmental sciences, and integrated study of the sustainable approaches for managing ecosystems.
