Medical Sciences with a Concentration

ms_spec

The M.S. research program in Medical Sciences, within the College of Medicine, offers several concentrations, which consists of basic/molecular science credits, with medical relevance. This program is designed to prepare students for future educational or research endeavors in graduate education or other professional programs. The courses are scheduled so that the degree can be completed within one year. In general, concentrations that AVERAGE seven (7) core/basic science and/or quantitative analysis credits per semester are intensely rigorous and will require the greatest amount of effort to be successful. The core difference between each concentration would be the course requirements.
