The PhD and MS with thesis programs in Biomedical Sciences offer four different areas of specialization: anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and cell biology. Graduate students take classes, serve as teaching assistants, and conduct research alongside faculty. The MS with thesis program is typically two years long, and the PhD program is often four to five years.
