About Our MA in Biomedicine Program
Our MA in Biomedicine program, approved by Commission of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), uniquely challenges students to take courses broadly from several disciplines. Some of the trans-disciplinary aspects are evident in a required cross-cultural component, a cross-discipline requirement, and finally in a thesis project.
Track record of success
Over the past 10 years, more than 80% of EMU students who completed EMU’s pre-medical program were accepted into medical school, compared to the national average of 49%. Acceptance rates for dental, veterinary medicine, and physical therapy schools are similar. Professors who are mentors and experts in their fields make a big difference.
Your coursework is integrated with counseling, academic & career advising, and health science practicum experiences, giving you a number of advantages upon graduation. We traditionally have a history of very high acceptance into medical school post-graduation.
Distinctives of EMU biomedical graduate studies
- Limited graduate assistantships are tailored to meet the needs of individual students.
- Course work is multidisciplinary, requiring a summer cross-cultural experience, cross-discipline studies, and research experiences.
- Small class size; some lecture periods are integrated with undergraduate students with separate laboratory or graduate experiences.
- Expert faculty and new facilities dedicated for this program.
- Terminal M.A. degree (48 graduate semester hours) or one-year certificate (28 program semester hours).
