The Master’s in Biomedical Science (MBS) degree is designed to provide academic enhancement for talented students who already possess an undergraduate degree in the sciences and who want to improve their future application to a professional or other graduate school. A major goal of the program is to allow students a tangible mechanism to demonstrate high-level academic achievement while taking a full load of rigorous and challenging courses. Success in such an educational scenario (analogous to what the student would encounter in professional school) can support and improve the success of subsequent professional school applications. The one year MBS program provides a foundation in various basic biological subjects that underlie and support medical and other professional school curricula. The MBS program is appropriate for students considering a future in human or veterinary medicine, dentistry, and other biomedically related doctoral programs.
