Anatomical Sciences

The Anatomical Sciences major is ideal for the graduate student who is pursuing a career in anatomy research, teaching or medical school. All courses are a structured preparatory route for future entry to professional school or a doctoral-level graduate program.


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 study alongside first-year medical school students at the DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (DCOM) in areas such as Histology and potentially Neuroanatomy.


Thirty-six graduate credit hours are the minimum requirement. Please note that in the event a student has course deficiencies in their undergraduate preparation, it may alter the curriculum of their graduate curriculum. This may require additional time for the successful completion of this major.
