Master of Science in Human Physiology
In the Master of Science degree in Human Physiology program, you’ll select a specialized area for research and study. Cardiopulmonary disease. The neurobiology of memory. Regulating gene expression. The effects of aging on muscle physiology. The interaction of cognitive and emotional processes in the nervous system—there are dozens to choose from.
But whatever you study, the program is really about you.
You design the curriculum, based on your own academic background, professional experience, and career objectives. Working with a faculty advisor, you schedule the required courses, pick your electives and decide on directed study, research, and professional or teaching experiences. You choose a project that fascinates you for your scholarly paper or thesis.
Sound like a lot of work and responsibility? It is. It’s also one of the most dynamic, flexible and exciting environments anywhere to prepare for further study in biology, physiology or neuroscience. If you want to pursue a career in biomedical research or follow a clinical career path in a hospital, pharmaceutical, or the biotech industry setting, the MS in Human Physiology is a great way to get there.
In addition to flexibility, the Sargent College program offers another major advantage: Boston University. At one of the world’s great research institutions, you’ll be surrounded by a rare variety of cutting-edge research—much of it interdisciplinary. Sargent College alone receives more than $10 million in outside funding, making it among the most highly funded colleges at BU.
