MS/PhD Program

This is a complete program for those who want a PhD and need research preparation.

Students in the MS/PhD program perform independent research leading to new discoveries and write a dissertation that can change lives for the better. Students with a Master’s Degree may leverage their graduate experience to reduce their classroom and research credit load by up to 30 credit hours. Our faculty are among the best in the world collectively and are leaders in their fields individually. They teach students how to critically review existing knowledge in archive journals and reduce this knowledge to enable them to propose original research.
