The M.S. program in Medical Biology is recognized for graduating competent and knowledgeable professionals and can lead to a variety of positions in biomedical research in the public or private sectors, in medical or pharmaceutical laboratories and in health care agencies and health education.  

Students pursue courses to examine normal and diseased states of the human body. They study pathophysiology, medical chemistry or biochemistry, and biomedical research methods in courses which constitute a core curriculum. Students choose one of four specializations – hematology, immunology, medical chemistry or medical microbiology. Four courses are recommended in each specialty; two additional courses are electives. The culmination of the program is the completion of a thesis.

Applicants seeking employment in a clinical laboratory that performs diagnostic blood tests need to become a certified and licensed Clinical Laboratory Scientist (CLS), and should apply to the Master of Science CLS program.
