About

The Biological and Biomedical Sciences MS program from North Carolina Central University provides students with a greater depth and breadth in course work and introduces them to the nature of creative and productive inquiry for careers in teaching, research in governmental, industrial and academic organizations, and entrance into doctoral programs.

Overview

There are two options at the North Carolina Central University for obtaining the MS degree in Biological and Biomedical Sciences: thesis and non-thesis project options. 

Both options require a minor, with the internal minor defaulting to Biomedical Sciences. Students may also choose an external minor in areas such as Pharmaceutical Sciences and Education.
