Master's Program

Above Applications are CLOSED.

Applications for the Class of 2020-2021 will be available February 1 and close May 15.

Beginning in the Fall Term, this program is designed for students who wish to earn an M.S. degree and plan, after program completion, to pursue one of the following:

  1. Application to a health profession's program such as medicine, dentistry, physician assistant, or physical therapy
  2. Application to a doctoral degree-granting program
  3. Employment in a research laboratory in academia or industry or other related profession

Students will choose to pursue either:

  • An intensive, course-oriented track that will prepare the student for the rigors of health professional graduate programs.

OR

  • An intensive, research-oriented track during which the student will spend their time in both classes and a research laboratory, allowing the student to explore their interest in research and prepare them for a health professional graduate program or the workforce.

The program begins every September: Coursework Track students complete the program by the end of June; Research Track students finish as late as mid-August.  See the “FAQ section for more information.

Students who wish to apply to the MIP PhD Graduate Program will need to apply through PIBS.
