Biomedical Science, M.Sc. in United States 2019

The University of New Mexico

Study in:United States
Deadline: 1 May 2019


After completion of the core curriculum, students are required to enroll in divisional seminars each semester until graduation. First-year MS Biomedical Science students are not eligible for stipend or tuition support by the BSGP, although many find funding in their second year. By the beginning of the second year, students choose a thesis advisor and form a Committee on Studies.

The Committee outlines any additional divisional course requirements relevant to the specific area of interest. The MS student is expected to present a minimum of one seminar during the second year, in addition to their thesis defense. Students must complete an original and creative research project as well as write and defend their thesis. Most students complete their MS degrees within 2-3 years.
