Genomic sciences has two components. Functional genomics, the generation of large bodies of
data relating to organism function, encompasses gene discovery, gene expression, protein and
nucleic acid structure and function, gene and gene product interactions, and genomic approaches
to breeding and comparative studies relevant to ecology and evolutionary biology. Bioinformatics
is the analysis of these vast and complex data sets including methods to analyze extremely large
sets of genomic information such as DNA sequences and expression from DNA microassays.
Students register in either of these two field but also receive a solid grounding in the other through
core courses common to both programs.

Admission Requirements: Students should have an undergraduate major in the biological or
physical sciences, mathematics, statistics or computer science and have completed calculus and
other comparable courses. In addition to the other application requirements, a student should
submit a statement of interests and career goals.

Master's Degree Requirements: Students take a 15-credit core curriculum of courses common to
both programs followed by courses specific to the degree and discipline.

Doctoral Degree Requirements: The Ph.D. program requires a total of 72 credits, and all
students participate in a journal club, monthly seminar series and research ethics training. A co-
mentoring system exists between bioinformatics and fimctional genomics through which each
student has advisors from both disciplines, and throughout the program they will have the
opportunity to gain practical experience in the Genome Research Laboratory, Bioinformations
Research Center and DNA Sequencing Facility.

Student Financial Support: A significant number of fellowships are available through the
genomics program, and students may also be supported by research grant fiinds awarded to
genomics faculty members.

Graphic Design



M. J. Davis, Head of the Department

Director of Graduate Programs:

M. J. Davis, Box 7701, 515.8328, [email protected]

Professors: M. J. Davis, V. M. Foote, H. Khachatoorian, A. S. Lowrey, M. Scotford; Associate
Professors: K. L. Bailey, S. Townsend; Associate Professors Emeriti: A. V. Cooke; Assistant
Professors: P. A. Brock

Recognizing that graphic design is both a social activity and a form of cultural production, faculty
and students in the Department of Graphic Design define the study of the discipline as necessarily
contextual; graduate research examines the creation, reproduction, distribution, and reception of
design from a multidisciplinary perspective. The Master of Graphic Design Program also
emphasizes the importance of understanding design as the creation of cognitive and cultural
artifacts; study focuses on the construction of messages, the reproduction of such artifacts, the
systems for their distribution, and their reception within various cultures of society.

Graduate students in graphic design learn through their own search for problems within critical
content frameworks presented by the faculty. The program places primary importance on the
ability of students to be critical agents; to seek problems and to pose questions. Faculty evaluate
graduate students on their capacity to define individual investigations and to support their
decision-making with an independent program of reading and research; on their ability to critically
evaluate and articulate discoveries; and on their skills in synthesizing ideas through the creation of
design artifacts.

The Master of Graphic Design Program provides focused study and research in the discipline that
reflects concern for how designers will shape and respond to the changing technological and social
communications environments of the fiiture. The Program has the broad objective to educate
socially responsible, intellectually curious, historically aware, and technologically adept
communication design professionals.

In the Track III Program, students whose undergraduate preparation is in fields other than graphic
design examine relationships between their previous study and graphic design. While acquiring
design skills and knowledge in graphic design, they apply concepts and methods from their
previous study to design research and innovation.

Admissions Requirements: Students must make application to the Department of Graphic Design


by January 15. In addition to Graduate School requirements, the department requires department
personal data forms and a slide portfolio of design and two-dimensional visual work.

Master's Degree Requirements: Studio credits presented for transfer must be accompanied by a
portfolio of work from the courses under consideration.

Student Financial Support: The department has limited provisions for tuition remission and
assistantships. Assistantships are awarded on the basis of student and departmental needs.
Assistantship applications are available from the Department of Graphic Design and should be
submitted with the application for admission (for incoming students) or by the advertised deadline
(for continuing students).
