Lead the revolution
With a postgraduate degree in genetics, you will be at the forefront of the revolution in biology that is rapidly changing our knowledge of ourselves and the world around us.
WHAT IS IT LIKE?
Massey’s Master of Science with a major in genetics will allow you to work alongside internationally-recognised researchers, on projects of national and global significance.
You will have access to world-class facilities including the Manawatu Microscopy and Imaging Centre and the Massey Genome Service (part of New Zealand Genomics Limited). You will also be able to utilise Massey’s broad range of expertise in the sciences, working with other departments and experts as you need to for your research.
Wide range of Specialties
Massey offers a very broad range of research areas in genetics, ranging from classical through molecular, biomedical, genomic and computational projects. These utilise a wide range of biological systems including microbial, plant, animal and human species.
Flexibility and industry links
At Massey you have the flexibility to choose from different locations for your study, including both the Manawatu and the Auckland campuses, as well as other research institutes such as AgResearch, Scion, and Plant & Food Research. This flexibility provides a great deal of project choice, as well as providing important industry linkages that enhance job prospects.
Why postgraduate study?
Postgraduate study is hard work but hugely rewarding and empowering. The Master of Science will push you to produce your best creative, strategic and theoretical ideas. The workload replicates the high-pressure environment of senior workplace roles. Our experts are there to guide but if you have come from undergraduate study, you will find that postgraduate study demands more in-depth and independent study.
Most genetics postgraduates gain employment as scientists in research institutes and universities both in New Zealand and overseas, in a wide variety of fields. Others have become forensic scientists, genetic counsellors, teachers, sales representatives, laboratory technicians, managers, journalists, ministry advisors, and health and safety advisors.
You will follow a parts-based programme of study, which shall consist of courses totalling at least 180 credits, comprising Part One and Part Two as defined by the Courses Schedule.
