Biomedical Sciences, MS (Transition from PhD)


Graduate study leading to the Master of Science (MS) in Biomedical Sciences for all concentrations other than Laboratory Research and Management  is only available to students accepted to and enrolled in the PhD in Biomedical Sciences program. A student who has satisfactorily completed a minimum of 30 credit hours may choose not to finish the additional coursework and research required for a PhD and instead choose to graduate with an MS degree. This option requires approval by the mentor, faculty committee, and track director. Notification to the college with a request for admission to MS degree candidacy must occur before the start of the term in which the student intends to graduate with the MS. Completion of the MS degree requires full-time registration and both an oral and written analysis of the work completed.
