The Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (1 year) 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 within the Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (1 year) include:

  • Human Anatomy
  • Animal Anatomy
  • Neurobiology
The Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (1 year) prepares students for the rigors of professional school by offering an analogous curriculum. Core courses feature extensive laboratory instruction, hands-on dissection, and recitations with problem-based learning exercises. Cadaver-based human and animal dissection experience with excellent student-to-cadaver ratios, typically 4 students per cadaver, makes the program truly unique. Additionally, neuroanatomy courses provide students the opportunity to work with real human anatomical specimens.
 
Emphasis in Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART)
 
Students in our Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (1 year) program can also choose an emphasis in assisted reproductive technologies. This program is a one-year, non-thesis course of study, culminating in a research project or internship. The curriculum prepares students for careers in applied reproduction, especially careers in human or bovine embryology. It is also appropriate for future PhD students.
