2013 Information Sessions: Interested in or have questions about our one-year Professional Master's program (MS-B)? Information Sessions will be held Mondays at 10 a.m. and Thursdays at 3 p.m. in Room 102 Physiology. Sessions start January 10, 2013 and continue through March 28, 2013. If interested, please RSVP to Heather Hall at (970) 491-2702 or email@example.com.
The Department of Biomedical Sciences offers three different graduate programs:
Our Professional Master's Program (MS-B) is a one-year, 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 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.
Our traditional Master's Program (MS-A) is research-based and typically takes 2-3 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 4-5 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.
