Featured Program: Biomolecular Sciences: Master of Arts

The Master of Arts in Biomolecular Sciences is designed to fulfill the educational needs of biologists who desire further specialization and/or knowledge of recent advances in cell and molecular aspects of biology, students who seek an immersion in cell and molecular biology as an intermediate step toward preparation for work at the doctoral level, and teachers who are interested in furthering their knowledge in molecular and cellular biology.

Biomolecular Science: Preparing Graduate Students for the Future

“Coming back for my master’s degree was the best decision I’ve ever made.  When I was looking for jobs with just my bachelor’s degree, I felt very apprehensive about the actual amount of knowledge and experience I had and if that would be enough.  After coming back, I feel like I could work any job in my field.  This program has provided me with the perfect mix of hands-on lab opportunities and classwork based around reading and understanding primary research.” David Artus, graduate student in Biomolecular Science (2012). 

The Master of Arts in Biomolecular Science (BMS) is the perfect program for: for the student interested in building a solid foundation before pursuing an advanced degree in the molecular sciences, those interested in advancing in the biotechnology industry, and for professionals seeking to expand their knowledge base in the molecular life sciences.   The program, with its blend of cutting edge curriculum and hands-on research, provides students with the opportunities to learn and apply some of the most recent advances in the field and gain valuable laboratory experience.  These experiences ensure that graduates from the program are well prepared and competitive to pursue employment or advanced degrees.  

 

Students in the MA in BMS program can elect to do a comprehensive exam or a research-based thesis as the capstone to their degree. Regardless of the capstone, all students in the program complete at least one semester of independent research.  The department offers opportunities to do research, using various model systems (mouse, zebrafish, bacteria, cell culture, mollusks, fruit fly and rat), that centers around genetic mapping, muscle development, cell cycle control, cell migration and differentiation, cardiac and neural cell physiology, antibiotic production, genetic analysis, and environmental adaptation.  In addition to the hands-on experience in the laboratory, students gain a strong understanding of research through the many courses offered in the program that are based on recent primary literature from top tier journals.  This ensures that our graduates know the latest findings and techniques in the field.
