Master of Science

Program Description

The 15-month master of science in biomedical sciences program provides graduates with extensive knowledge, skills and expertise to function in a variety of biomedical professions. Through career practicums, didactic biomedical course work, and a culminating scholarly project, students are well-positioned to directly enter biomedical workforce in industry, academia or governmental labs or to pursue further study in graduate or health professional programs. In addition, students have the option of developing an individual plan of study that includes multiple areas of biomedical sciences or they can select one of the two specialization tracks in either anatomical sciences or neuroscience.


Upon completion of the program, students will be able to:

  1. Explain fundamental principles in biomedical sciences and synthesize advanced knowledge within specific biomedical subjects.
  2. Demonstrate the ability to apply analytical approaches, problem solving skills, critical thinking skills, and critical evaluation of scientific literature used in biomedical sciences.
  3. Demonstrate effective professional communication and presentation skills, both verbal and written.
  4. Demonstrate competency in career-enabling skill sets consistent with the student's interest of research or instructional techniques used in biomedical sciences.
  5. Exhibit professionalism and interpersonal skills required of a professional biomedical scientist.
