Curriculum

 Students must complete a total of 30 credit hours, with a cumulative GPA of a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, in order to receive his or her MS degree. Prior to registration, each student will meet with the Directors of the program to review their transcripts. Any deficiencies in the core sciences will be identified at that time and a course schedule will be designed to address each student’s individual needs.

All students are required to take the following courses, which total 12 credit hours:

Fall:

CELL 7860 Seminars in CMB (3 credits)
CELL 7990 Research in CMB (3 credits)*

Spring:

CELL 7870 Seminars in CMB (3 credits)*
CELL 8000 Research in CMB (3 credits)*

 

The remaining 18 credits will consist of lecture courses such as the electives listed below.  

 

6000 - Biomedical Ethics (3)
6010 - Cellular Biochemistry (3)
6080 - Advanced Developmental and Cell Biology II (3)

Students may be permitted to take electives from other departments with the approval of the program's Co-Directors.

 

*Research: This component of the curriculum involves on site work experiences coupled with formal classroom presentations summarizing the work. The Experiential component will be tailored to the student's career path and can range from traditional laboratory research to Service Learning programs in medical or professional settings. The major goals of this course are to 1) provide a learning component that will solidify the student's resolve in pursuing a particular career
