The M.S. program at Temple University is aimed at broad interdisciplinary training in the major areas of Biomedical Sciences.


The goal is to train students in the theory and practice of Biomedical Sciences at Temple University for eventual service in research and teaching. Students are instructed in diverse laboratory techniques through a series of lecture and laboratory courses, and provided with a program of experimental research for thesis students under the guidance of a faculty member. Two options are available:

  • Thesis Track, with a transcripted concentration in the area of thesis research. Five areas of concentration or clusters are available: Cancer Biology and Genetics, Infectious Disease and Immunity, Molecular and Cellular Biosciences, Neuroscience, and Organ Systems and Translational Medicine. Students complete and defend a master's thesis under the supervision of a faculty member.
  • Non-Thesis Track, which is in General Biomedical Sciences. Students complete didactic coursework in each of the five cluster areas.

Future Career
