Cellular, Molecular and Biomedical Sciences M.S.

All students must meet the Requirements for the Master's Degree

The Cellular, Molecular and Biomedical Sciences Program only awards M.S. degrees to students who have matriculated into the Ph.D. program, but for various reasons cannot complete the Ph.D. These students must be recommended by their studies committee for the M.S., and are required to complete the minimum course and research requirements for the M.S. as defined by the Graduate College, and must defend a research-based master’s thesis.
