This Molecular and Cellular Biology - Accelerated Master's Program degree from University of Arizona is not open to students who have completed a Bachelor's degree or an advanced degree from another institution.
AMP students focus on completing undergraduate-level courses and gaining research experience during their first three to four years. Typically students will apply for AMP in their third year by submitting an application through the UA Graduate College. Upon acceptance to the Accelerated Master's Program, students continue to take a combination of undergraduate and graduate courses in their fourth year to complete their Bachelor's degree.
During this time, students also expound on their research, preparing for graduate-level research. Students will gradaute with an undergradaute degree and then are transitioned to gradaute students status. In the fifth and final year, students focus on graduate course work and their research-based thesis in order to complete the requirements for the Master's degree, including thesis defense.
Who should pursue the AMP?
The AMP is well-suited for students who aim to gain research experience at the graduate level, including pre-med students who may conduct research in the future, students who would like to evaluate their passion for research before launching into a PhD program, and others who might find graduate-level research experience beneficial for a future career or position.
