The Department of Pathobiology at Texas A&M University is one of the largest and most active in the country. The Department offers programs of graduate instruction, residencies and research leading to the degrees of Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy in:

These degree programs provide the opportunity for course work of suitable breadth and depth within the major and supporting fields in conjunction with research experience in an area of interest. Research projects are designed to prepare doctoral students to perform independently in preparation for their future role as leaders and teachers in academic and industrial research and education.

A major strength of the department is the number of diverse yet overlapping research programs in host/pathogen interactions and genetics of disease susceptibility and resistance. The graduate faculty are usually associated with more than one program, and several are also members of intercollegiate programs in Genetics , Virology and in Toxicology .
