Full-time students can earn a master's degree in Biomedical Science program coursework in two years—longer for part-time students. Students who follow these three steps can plan on completing the program requirements at a pace that meets their professional needs.
Review the Biomedical Science program planning guide, which allows students to plan out their coursework on a semester-by-semester basis.
Look up the Biomedical Science program requirements, course descriptions, and Graduate School policies and procedures in the catalog.
Students should consult with their program director and/or faculty adviser; the program director contact information is located at the bottom of the Biomedical Science home page and each student's academic adviser is indicated on their letter of admission. These faculty members can assist in planning a program of study that is based on a student's professional and career goals. All students must consult with their advisers before signing up for any capstone, thesis or independent study-related project.
At the Graduate School at Hood College, students have the opportunity to work closely with faculty who can assist in the pursuit of academic and professional goals. Students are encouraged to get to know their faculty advisers and course professors to make the most of their graduate school experience.
