The Department of Biomedical Sciences offers four different graduate programs:
Our Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (1 year) with a choice of concentration is a non-thesis, coursework-intensive program, with an emphasis on upper-division and graduate-level coursework in gross anatomy, physiology, cell biology and neurobiology. The program can be completed in one year, culminating in written comprehensive exams. It was initially designed to provide increased academic strength to pre-professional students; however, its purpose has expanded to also provide a solid foundation to those pursuing various careers in the biomedical sciences. Concentrations include: human anatomy, animal anatomy or neurobiology.
2013-14 Information Sessions: Interested in or have questions about our Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (1 year)? Information sessions are offered at the following times:
**If interested, please RSVP to Heather Hall at (970) 491-2702 or email@example.com.
Our Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (1 year) with an emphasis in Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) is a one-year, non-thesis course of study, culminating in a research project or internship. The curriculum prepares students for careers in applied reproduction, especially careers in human or bovine embryology. It is also appropriate for future PhD students. Our traditional Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (2+ years) is research-based and typically takes two to three years to complete. While less comprehensive than a PhD, students complete a meaningful and original research project, which culminates in writing and defending a thesis. This option is designed for motivated students who have the ability to develop critical thinking skills and conduct research in one of the three primary areas of study in our department: cardiovascular physiology, reproductive physiology, and neurobiology.
Our PhD Program is research-based and typically takes four to five years to complete, culminating in writing and defending a dissertation. This option is more comprehensive in scope than the research-based Master's degree and is designed for motivated students who have the ability to develop critical thinking skills and conduct original research in one of the three primary areas of study in our department: cardiovascular physiology, reproductive physiology, and neurobiology.
