Master of Science in Biology for the Health Professions
The purpose of this program is to accommodate the needs of students wishing to improve their qualifications for admission to health-related professional schools such as medicine, dentistry, optometry, and pharmacy by providing advanced training in biology leading to a master of science degree. The program is designed so that it is possible to take the program entirely online, either by full-time or part-time study. Students wishing to acquire advanced hands-on laboratory experience may do so by taking the suggested laboratory courses as electives.
The degree will require 32 credit hours, with 22 credit hours of required courses and the remainder elective courses. Up to 9 credit hours of electives may be 400-level coursework. No more than 9 credit hours may be non-biology courses.
