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.

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.
