Master of Science (MS)



Anatomical Sciences Curriculum


The Anatomical Sciences major is ideal for the graduate student who is pursuing a career in an anatomy research or teaching lab, medical school or, for example, working alongside an anatomist.

Students will participate in foundational graduate courses that will help them to understand and use the primary literature of Anatomical Sciences.  In addition to graduate level Anatomical Science courses, students will also work alongside first-year medical school students at the DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (DCOM) in areas such as Medical Gross Anatomy and Histology.

A total of thirty graduate credit hours are the minimum requirement.  Typical course schedules are listed below as an example.
