Biomedical Research (Thesis) 
MS in Biomedical Sciences

Pursue groundbreaking, cutting-edge research in a topic that most interests you as a student in the Biomedical Research (Thesis) Concentration. As a research candidate, you will work one-on-one with a faculty mentor to develop and execute an original project that advances scientific understanding.

In earning a MS in Biomedical Sciences with a concentration in biomedical research, you will demonstrate advanced knowledge and skills in a particular topic and the independence, ability and perseverance to comprehensively plan and execute a complex project.

Students who have earned the MS in Biomedical Sciences with the Biomedical Research (Thesis) Concentration have gone on to positions in:

  • Medical technology/biotechnology
  • Biomedical research and development
  • Pharmaceuticals (technician, sales rep, etc.)
  • Science teaching
  • Scientific writing and editing
  • PhD programs in science
  • Public health/epidemiology
  • Medical law and/or ethics

Upon completion of the research concentration, the student will be able to:

  • demonstrate advanced knowledge in their chosen area of biomedical sciences.
  • apply advanced skills to access, synthesize and interpret medical literature.
  • apply scientific method, data analysis, and empirical inquiry toward the implementation of a successful research project design including hypothesis generation, design of experiments, planning and executing the necessary methodologies and analyses, and completing a written and oral presentation that is worthy of publication and public presentation.
  • demonstrate advanced understanding of multiple approaches to quantitation of results, to presenting the research in written and oral forms, and to conveying its significance in health related issues.
  • apply their knowledge and skills in industry, teaching, or further graduate study.
  • demonstrate effective use of computer technology in the biomedical sciences.

After completing foundation year coursework, students may progress to the second-year degree concentration.
