Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences


Biomedical Sciences is a one-year program and can be completed in three full-time quarters. The six required core courses provides the academic foundation to biomedicine. Students then choose one of three concentrations: Science Communication, Biomedical Data Science, or Health Systems Science, to complete elective courses and as the basis for their MS independent project. To sum, the curriculum encompasses three components:


     6 Core Courses + 3 Concentration-Elective Courses + Independent Project
