MS in Pathology and Anatomical Sciences
The MS degree is designed primarily to prepare students for supervisory roles in basic-science and clinical laboratories, and to offer greater in-depth study in pathology and anatomical sciences concurrent with studies leading to the PhD and/or MD degree.
Each candidate for the master's degree is required to complete a minimum of 30 semester hours at the 8000 or 9000 level and maintain a B or better GPA in graduate course work, with no more than 12 hours of research, problems, seminars or special investigations.
Candidates also must satisfactorily complete a thesis. A candidate is expected to demonstrate knowledge of clinical and/or research techniques and to defend the thesis.
Faculty members advise students regarding their program of study and thesis research. A list of graduate faculty eligible to supervise MS students is available on the departmental website.
Required courses and those of special interest should complement the student's academic background and career objectives.
