The Masters of Science in Biomedicine and Law degree program provides interactive and comprehensive training in technical and practical aspects of science and research, as well as in the legal aspects related to new biomedical product development, entrepreneurship and regulatory compliance. This program is geared to individuals interested in careers focused in technology development. Graduates of this program will be prepared to progress into more advanced graduate studies in science and/or careers in scientifically oriented management jobs in the public or private sector (e.g., technology commercialization offices, patent agencies). These individuals will also be competitive Law School applicants, if they so choose to continue their professional studies, even though credits for their legal coursework in this program will not be transferable for Law School credits. Curriculum This 2-year non-thesis program consists of required and elective courses in science and digital media (at least 30.0 semester credits) and an experiential learning component (2.0 - 6.0 semester credits). The program's "flex-credit" option allows students to customize their plan of study depending on each individual’s academic and professional aspirations. "Flex-credit" can be used to select from a list of advanced elective courses. Students will choose electives based on their career interests and the option they choose to fulfill their experiential learning component. There are several ways to customize the experiential learning component (2.0 - 6.0 semester credits) so that it satisfies both the degree requirements and, especially, the student’s own personal situation. The duration of the internship may vary. Shorter rotations may require that the student enroll in elective courses to meet the semester credit requirements for degree. The student must complete a minimum total of 36.0 semester credits to graduate.
