John,

A lot of that sort of info depends on what ou want to do in Microbiology. there
are many different facets of this science, and it depends on who is doing what
at each university.

As for clasical microbiology, I went to SDSU and was very pleased with the
classes offered. Unfortunately, most of the micro classes are being merged with
molecular biology classes, so the number of courses is dwindling.

If you want to get into medical micro, you need a college that has both general
and pathogenic micro.  I know in CA, to get a job with the state in the micro
field you need to have a course in pathogenic bacteria, which a lot of colleges
don't offer any longer.

I hope this was at least helpful in some way, but he field is very broad and
the possibilities are endless. (I work at a college for a chemistry prof
researching natural products (i.e. antibiotics) from marine sources)
