 One-year master's students can focus in the disciplines of human anatomy, animal anatomy, or neurobiology.

Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (1 year) with Choice of Option

The Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (1 year) with choice of option is designed to prepare students for the rigors of professional school, obtaining a PhD, pursuing biomedical education, and for those seeking careers in the health care or biotech industries. Options include: human anatomy, animal anatomy, and neurobiology. We also offer a choice of option and DVM Program combined degree program.

Also called MSpro, this is an intensive program that lets you earn a master's degree in about one year, with no thesis, to ready for professional school or a more advanced career.

Cadaver-based human and animal dissection experience with excellent student-to-cadaver ratios, typically four students per cadaver, makes the program truly unique. Neuroanatomy courses provide students the opportunity to work with real human anatomical specimens.
