College of Graduate Studies

Welcome to the College of Graduate Studies! We are committed to the training of tomorrow's biomedical research scientists. Our degree programs of Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences or Doctor of Philosophy in Biomedical Sciences train students in cutting-edge bench research. Our PhD programs in Biostatistics and Epidemiology, and our new program in Biomedical Data Science and Informatics (BDSI, joint PhD with Clemson University), train students in quantitative disciplines that are highly germane to many aspects of research and healthcare delivery and outcomes. Our Master of Science in Clinical Research program provides part-time or full-time training for those interested in clinical research. We also offer an NIH funded MD/Ph.D. program with the College of Medicine, a DMD/Ph.D. program with the College of Dental Medicine and a PharmD/Ph.D. with the College of Pharmacy for students interested in careers in medical, dental or pharmaceutical research. Our Masters in Medical Science program is a one-year pre-professional program to launch the careers of students interested in pursuing MD or DMD training. Within the sphere of workforce development, we offer a Post-baccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP) as well as Summer Health Professions (SHP) and Summer Undergraduate Research (SURP) programs.
