  • Application Deadline
  • 24 months
University rank #71 (WUR) , OH,
The Anatomy Master’s Program is designed to prepare students for continuing their education in a professional degree program (e.g., MD, DDS, DPT etc.) or for research in a PhD program. The Anatomy Master’s Program also prepares graduates to teach Anatomy or pursue a career in a health-related industry.


The MS in Anatomy would be appropriate for students who want a graduate degree in anatomy to fulfill a professional need or who want to improve their anatomical knowledge to make a more informed career decision.

There are two masters plans:Thesis, which requires a research project, andNon-Thesis. The MS degree is usually completed in 2 years. For a degree, a student takes the required courses in all of the subdisciplines of anatomy (Gross Anatomy; Histology; Embryology; Neuroanatomy; and seminars). The student also takes advanced classes in his/her field of specialty; these classes would be in anatomy, other basic medical sciences, and other areas of interest to the student. Each thesis master’s student also completes a research project. Students may pursue either plan, subject to the rules of the Graduate Studies Committee. Students enrolled in both professional school and graduate school must pursue the thesis plan.
