The Department of Human Genetics at the University of Michigan Medical School is devoted to advancing the fields of genetics and genomics to further our understanding of biology and human disease.
The Master’s Degree Program (M.S.) in Human Genetics provides focused graduate coursework and laboratory research training in human genetics and genomics. Graduates from our M.S. program have successfully matriculated to top Ph.D. programs and medical schools and research positions in the biotech industry and academic laboratories. The course of study can be completed in 2-4 semesters.
The Department of Human Genetics recognizes the importance of promoting diversity, equity and inclusion within our academic community and the field. We strive to attract outstanding, highly motivated students from broadly diverse backgrounds and from groups who are underrepresented at the University and in the field of human genetics. Thus, we are pleased to announce the Human Genetics Master’s Student Merit Award Program, which provides substantial financial assistance to eligible students from underrepresented groups and covers the cost of tuition, health and dental care and a stipend for one year.
Complete details including eligibility and application information* are available on the DHG website. For additional information about the Human Genetics M.S. Program and Merit Awards, please contact Ashley Andreae ([email protected]) or Dr. Thomas Glover ([email protected]), Director of the Master’s Program.
