The two-year MS program was created to prepare students for successful careers in translational, clinical, and public health research and management. The program aims to teach individuals to translate discoveries made through science and health-based research into medical and scientific innovations useful to the world at large. It emphasizes specific training in translational, clinical, and public health research skills and a deep understanding of the context within medical science is translated for societal benefit.
The two-year MS program prepares students for a successful lifelong career in translational, clinical, or public health research and management, combining rigorous graduate-level courses with a year-long research thesis project. Graduates are uniquely positioned to excel in a variety of careers addressing the critical and managerial needs of biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, clinical and academic laboratories, and public health and doctoral research. Students in the MS program complete courses in core science, professional development, management, advanced technical topics, and a capstone project. Students also focus their studies further by selecting one of four concentrations.
MS Concentrations: Translational Research Thesis, Clinical Research Thesis, Public Health Research Thesis, Team Master's Project
