Program Overview

The 21 month Master of Science degree is offered through the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences on both the Abilene & Lubbock TTUHSC campuses. Those with a strong entrepreneurial spirit may be interested in our dual MS/MBA program administered in cooperation with TTU. The first two semesters consists of didactic coursework and  research laboratory rotations. In June of the first year, work begins full-time in a laboratory. A competitive salary and tuition are included until graduation for those who choose a TTUHSC lab. Students can also choose internships in industry or at the TTUS Office of Research Commercialization. A wide variety of funded research opportunities are available in our friendly and collaborative environment. Entrepreneurial science is the trend in both academia and industry and our program prepares our students to join a biotech company, secure an academic or industry technical research position, work at a government agency, take the patent bar exam or metriculate a Ph.D. with an advantage.
