Our non-thesis master’s curriculum permits dental and medical track students to finish in one year. While most students can complete the Biomedical Sciences MS program in 12 months (three semesters), the program may be extended beyond that time frame based on academic performance or individual circumstances. Students starting in Fall or Spring terms, will typically begin with 12 credits; students starting in the Summer term, will typically begin with 9 credits.
Each completed application is reviewed by our faculty admissions committee. The committee's goal is to admit students who will aptly manage our rigorous curriculum, commit to scientific learning and demonstrate sound professional capacity. While the review process considers each element of an application, we place a strong focus on overall academic performance, specific science pre-requisites, upper level science coursework, academic performance trend, and analysis of any patterns of withdrawals or repeated courses.
