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:

  • Immunology
  • Microbiology
  • Gene expression
  • Inflammation
  • 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.
