Master of Science

The Master of Science (MSc) degree program provides a unique opportunity to conduct research in developing countries in the tropics. The program is centered upon active and original bench, and/or field research, and presentation of a thesis in anatomical pathology; anatomy, aquatic animal health; bacteriology; clinical pathology; parasitology; pharmacology; small animal clinical sciences; large animal clinical sciences; virology; or wildlife medicine.

The MSc degree requires completion of 34 graduate credits as prescribed by the program. Under the supervision of an academic advisor and supervisory committee, students prepare a research project proposal. Once approved, an ongoing research experience is conducted throughout the period of enrollment in the degree program. The program culminates with a final comprehensive oral examination and defense of a thesis. The major selected determines the research area and graduate coursework requirements for the completion of the program.
