Biomedical Sciences Graduate Certificate Program

Graduate Certificate Program in Biomedical Sciences

Admission Requirements:

Application Open

Spring:

August 1 - December 15

Fall:

December 1 - July 15

Overview

The one-year Graduate Certificate Program in Biomedical Sciences (BISC) is composed of 12 graduate credits that will have to be earned through four required courses plus two elective credits. The courses cover topics in the biomedical sciences, statistics, R programming, plus an elective science course. Furthermore students will be required to attend a course on Case Studies in Responsible Conduct of Research.

All these courses are an integral part of the Master's Program in Biomedical Sciences and Biotechnology. Therefore, if a graduate certificate student would later like to enter the Master's Program in Biomedical Sciences and Biotechnology, all certificate credits can be transferred into that program.
