The Master in Biomedical Science (MBS) degree is a 30 credit program. Twenty four credits are required courses, while the remaining credits can be elective coursework. You can finish our comprehensive biomedical curriculum in as few as three semesters, but we understand that balancing personal and professional responsibilities can be challenging. You can choose to take fewer courses each semester and complete your studies over a longer period of time.
