The MS in Molecular Genetics & Cell Biology is a Thesis Track program that includes coursework and research, and is designed to enhance a career in biomedical research, medicine or dentistry.
The curriculum is uniquely designed to complement each student's background as well as their master's thesis research project. The MS degree is awarded upon completion of the approved curriculum, passing the comprehensive examination, and completion of a research project that results in a written thesis with an oral defense. Completion of degree requirements generally requires 2 years.
