    Note, students do not have to start the Master’s and the Certificate Program at the same time, but the Certificate will have to be completed by the latest at the time when the Master’s is earned.
  • Courses are not guaranteed to always be offered, or offered in the indicated semester. Faculty availability might require changes. Students are encouraged to check the course availability before planning their semester schedule.
  • The courses BMSC 7810 “Core Topics in Biomedical Sciences” will be recognized for graduation for all BSBT-GEN students, but some courses allow only a limited number of students to enroll and might give preference to PhD students. Please check with course directors.
  • Please check with course directors for courses that have restricted enrollment, i.e. might request the prior fulfillment of some pre-requirements
  • It is the student’s responsibility to verify before enrollment in any elective courses that they fulfill the pre-requirements that are posted or inquire with the course director which pre-requirements apply.
  • If a student would like to enroll in an elective that is currently not included in the list, students should discuss this choice with the Program Director first to make sure that this alternative elective can be counted towards the degree!
