6 Masters of Arts in Life Sciences

A Master of Arts is a graduate-level degree often awarded for studies related to arts, humanities or social sciences. It is similar to a Master of Science in both complexity and duration. An MA program can usually be completed in one or two years.

What is an MA in Life Sciences? It is an advanced academic degree that looks at the broad group of sciences that study living organisms and bioethics. Some universities may give their participants a chance to choose a narrower focus, such as biology, medicine, geography or zoology. Because life sciences can cover so many topics, the required courses for this degree program can be quite different at each university. Some course examples could include systems biology, computational neuroscience, data mining and machine learning, biomedical dataset systems, medical imaging and visualization, and statistical genetics.

Studying life sciences can help participants hone their analytical thinking, which they can use to perform experiments for work or as they come across a problem in their personal lives. This education may also improve a person’s digital literacy because many of the courses focus heavily on computers. Finally, an MA in Life Sciences may make a person more comfortable with change, which can make both work and life easier.

The cost of an MA in Life Sciences can vary whether a person takes classes online or on campus. Other factors that affect tuition include the school, its location and program duration. It may be helpful to contact schools directly to learn more about cost.

Students who have a master’s degree in life sciences may be ready for a career in medicine, healthcare, biopharma or medical devices, but they also learn transferable skills that could take them out of this area. Some graduates have gone on to become experimental researchers, pharmacists, biologists, chemical engineers, molecular biologists, professors, human resource managers, museum curators and doctors. This MA program can also serve as the foundation for a doctorate degree.
