The MS Biomedical Sciences program from University of Wisconsin Milwaukee provides an advanced level of training for biomedical scientists, with emphasis on developing an understanding of the mechanisms of human disease and providing broad-based training in biomedical laboratory research.


The MS Biomedical Sciences program from University of Wisconsin Milwaukee offers a diverse array of classes and research opportunities. As a student in this program, you will gain experience in selected areas of emphasis, such as immunology, the pathogenesis of infectious diseases, toxicology, pharmacology, neurodegeneration and cancer biology.

Degree tracks

The MS degree has two tracks. You may apply for entry into our research-based Thesis Track or our coursework-based Non-Thesis Track to best fit your career goals.

The Thesis Track requirements include a thesis based on hypothesis-driven research conducted by the student to enhance problem-solving abilities and the student’s capacity to function more effectively in the biomedical field.

The Non-Thesis Track is designed for students who want to gain knowledge in the biomedical sciences by taking courses focused on human health and disease without a research component. This track may be suitable for a variety of students, including those who currently work in a laboratory setting and wish to obtain a higher degree and those requiring a degree beyond the bachelor’s level to teach.

  • Experimental Design and Research in Biomedical Sciences
