Field of Study: Pathology and Experimental Pathology
Programs in pathology and experimental pathology teach people about tissue injury and disease.
Pathology and experimental pathology programs include topics such as:
- Gene expression
- Cell injury
Very few colleges and universities offer bachelor's degrees in pathology and experimental pathology. A bachelor's degree usually takes about four years of full-time study.
Many universities and medical schools offer graduate degrees in pathology and experimental pathology. A master's degree typically requires two years of study beyond a bachelor's degree. Doctoral (PhD) degree programs usually require two or more years of study beyond the master's degree.
