Master’s Programs

Pursue a master of science in medical sciences through one of these eight programs.

  • Biochemistry

The Biochemistry program is designed to provide students necessary skills to obtain positions within the private and government research sectors.  Our M.S. program is also designed to provide the background necessary for entry into competitive Ph.D. or other professional school programs.

  • Biomedical Informatics

The mission of the Biomedical Informatics program is to train a diverse workforce of professionals, researchers and leaders with multidisciplinary training in computer science, health and medicine, biostatistics, data science and analytics, engineering and research methodology. Students can also explore a certificate option.

  • Health Outcomes and Policy

The Master of Science in Medical Sciences with a concentration in Health Outcomes and Policy is designed to equip graduates with interdisciplinary skills in research design and execution that will make them highly marketable in the growing fields of health outcomes and policy research, translational science and prevention science. A certificate is also available

  • Gerontology

More than 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 every day, and according to the Eldercare Workforce Alliance, the United States is ill-prepared to meet current and future workforce needs for its aging adult population. Be a part of the solution to this major problem facing the healthcare landscape with an online graduate certificate or master’s degree in Gerontology.

  • Medical Physics

The Medical Physics program is one of the most established in the U.S.  While the program is academically housed in the J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Biomedical Engineering, it is a joint effort of the College of Engineering and the College of Medicine.

  • Medical Sciences

The foundation of the Medical Sciences program is a basic understanding of molecular and cell biology and the completion of a high-quality supervised research project. Specialization may be in any of the fields of research being pursued in the College of Medicine such as molecular genetics, gene therapy, bacterial or viral pathogenesis, protein structure, toxicology, mammalian genetics, wound healing or congenital eye diseases.

  • Molecular Cell Biology

    The Master of Science in Medical Sciences with a concentration in Molecular, Cellular and Cancer Biology (MCB MS program) is designed for students interested in graduate study and laboratory research in the exciting field of molecular, cellular and cancer biology. Students will acquire cell biology and interdisciplinary research skills to become competitive for research positions in colleges, universities, and companies in the biomedical, biotechnology, pharmaceutical, bio-agricultural, and diagnostics/devices sectors.

  • Translational Biotechnology

The Translational Biotechnology program is interdisciplinary (biosciences and business), research-intensive and industry-focused. Students will complete a formal internship to earn their M.S. along with a minor in Entrepreneurship.
