What is Biomedical Sciences at WVU like?
The MS degree in the Biomedical Sciences is also designed for transition to the biomedical PhD program as the didactic curriculum is similar for both the MS and PhD degrees.
The MS degree in the Biomedical Sciences has a thesis or non-thesis option and can be completed in 2 years.
Students who would like to enhance their competitiveness for entry into advanced professional and graduate programs or who are interested in integrating their studies in the disciplines of biomedical and public health sciences should consider the MS of Health Sciences.
As an incoming student, you will:
- start your graduate studies with an orientation that will prepare you to successfully transition into graduate studies, and allow you to interact with an orientation advisor, faculty and resident students at social events while enjoying the outdoors
- have the opportunity to match with a faculty mentor upon matriculation or conduct at least one rotation before matching with a mentor
- take a course in scientific writing during the summer of year 2
- have the opportunity to participate in seminar series, workshops and field experiences focused on non-academic careers
