College of Graduate Studies | Programs of Study

The College of Graduate Studies offers degree programs which prepare students for diverse careers including research scientists, principal investigators, or teachers. Degrees are granted by the Board of Trustees on recommendation of the faculty, which in turn acts only on certification by the College of Graduate Studies. The college offers programs leading to the following degrees:

Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences

A research intensive degree program requiring completion of an independent laboratory research project under the direction of a mentor in a student's chosen field, written thesis, and oral thesis defense. Students choose one of the following tracks as their field of concentration:

Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Public Health Sciences
Cell and Molecular Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics

Microbiology and Immunology
Neurosciences
Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
Regenerative Medicine and Cell Biology

Master of Science in Clinical Research
A specifically designed knowledge and skills building program has been created to provide advanced training in clinical research at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). This program includes 38 academic credit hours, and is compliant with the core competencies as recommended by the National Center for Advancing Translational Science (NCATS). The objective of this program is to prepare health professionals for research in the clinical setting. Emphasis is placed on practical applications of scientific issues. Upon the successful completing of this program, and the recommendation of the advisory committee, the students will be awarded the Master of Science in Clinical Research degree from the College of Graduate Studies.

Master of Science in Medical Sciences is a one-year program specifically designed to provide students with a structured opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills that will prepare them for the challenges of applying to and suceeding in medical school and other professional schools. This on-site program contains didactic coursework at the professional level, professional skill development sessions, standardized test (e.g. MCAT or DAT) preparation, and clinical exposures to form a complementary skill set to those that have been acquired at the undergraduate level.
