Most learning in graduate school comes from hands-on thesis research. Coursework also plays an important role. For most biosciences students, coursework starts with a uniquely designed Foundations course and includes in-depth courses in specialized areas. Stanford courses emphasize interactive learning and learning through the scientific literature.
