The Master of Science in Biology (Medical Sciences) program is designed to prepare students for a medical sciences research career or for those students wishing to enter medical, dental, optometry, physician assistant, and pharmacy schools. This degree can be completed in one calendar year. Unlike many programs, most courses are offered both fall and spring, enabling the student to mix and match course load each semester, giving him/her great flexibility in designing the class sequence.
This biology degree is a unique opportunity for students to take courses taught at the Medical School level to prepare for Medical School. Typically, the first-year Medical School curriculum will include Human Gross Anatomy, Medical Physiology, Biochemistry, Histology, Human Neuroanatomy, and Human Embryology. Pharmacology is usually taught during the second year of Medical School.
