The Applied Biomedical Sciences Master's Degree Program at UMass Lowell is intended for experienced professionals or new graduates with a background in clinical sciences/medical laboratory science, biology, chemistry, biochemistry, biotechnology or related areas.
This program provides individuals with the level of graduate education to develop those skills required to upgrade the quality of their job performance and enhance their opportunities for advancement in their professions. Students will develop skills and knowledge required for the advanced degree, including critical and independent thinking, research design, normal and pathophysiology, analytical method evaluation and scientific literature assessment. Students will also develop competencies in administration and management.
The program serves local and regional scientists and is the only public program of its kind in New England (New England residents may qualify for reduced tuition). Faculty are experienced in the field and several are certified in specialized areas of the clinical sciences.
Completion of this graduate program does not qualify students to sit for the national certification examination in Medical Laboratory Sciences/Medical Technology offered by the American Society of Clinical Pathology (ASCP) Board of Certification.
