The Master of Science (M.S.) program in Genetics, Cell Biology and Anatomy is a two year program consisting of both coursework and research (UNMC M.S. thesis option 2). Students pursuing the M.S. degree in Genetics, Cell Biology and Anatomy must complete a curriculum consisting of four graduate courses. Each M.S. student's curriculum is unique and is designed to complement the student's background as well as their master's thesis research project. Course descriptions can be found in the Graduate Studies Bulletin. All M.S. seeking students must register each semester for the Genetics, Cell Biology and Anatomy Seminar (GCBA 970) and Journal club (GCBA 902A).
The M.S. degree is awarded upon completion of the approved curriculum, passage of the comprehensive examination (i.e., writing a review article related to thesis topic), and completion of a research project that results in a written thesis with an oral defense.
