In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

When studying biological & life sciences, students learn different characteristics of natural science. Depending on the area of focus, students may study the human body, plant biology, or animal science in order to help with real-world problems.

The United States of America is a large country in North America, often referred to as the "USA", the "US", the "United States", "America", or simply "the States". American colleges are funded by "tuition" charged to the student, which is often quite expensive, very commonly reaching into the tens of thousands of dollars per year.

Admissions Requirements A Bachelor’s or graduate degree with a 3.0 GPA or higher preferred. We consider the applicant's entire record, and applicants with a GPA of 2.8-3.0 may be accepted. For example, applicants whose grades have increased over time or who had poor grades for a year due to illness may be accepted with a GPA as low as 2.8. We pay special attention to science and math course grades and we prefer to accept applicants with mostly A's and B's in these courses. Competitive scores from the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL; International applicants only) Have successfully completed: Biology (2 semesters with labs) General Chemistry (2 semesters with labs) Mathematics, e.g., Calculus or Statistics (1 semester) Additional Math or Physics (1 semester) Candidates must have completed all undergraduate degree requirements and have been issued a bachelor's degree prior to matriculating as an EVMS student. If the bachelor's degree was issued by a U.S. college or university, as a general rule it should be from a regionally accredited institutution.
