Biomedical Science

Many students choose to continue their education by earning master’s degrees. Holding a degree of this level often offers many benefits when entering a career, but an undergraduate degree is necessary before it is possible to enroll in a master’s program.

What is an MSc in Biomedical Science? Those who choose to enter this field are usually interested in working in health care services. These programs prepare students to enter medical school and eventually become physicians. Course work includes the study of anatomy, biology, and the treatment of diseases. It is possible to significantly specialize while earning a master’s degree in this area.

Students who earn a Master of Science in Biomedical Science benefit by being free to continue their education and come closer to entering the health care field, which is typically highly paid and provides opportunities to help people. Holding this degree may also aide in employment in this field.

The cost of studying for a Master of Science varies quite a bit. The fees and tuition depend on the specific school, program, and country of study. The length of study and whether it is online or in person will also influence expenses.

While the career options for those who have earned a MSC in Biomedical Science are limited to the health care field, there are many areas in which one can specialize. It is possible to dedicate yourself to gerontology, microbiology, psychology, internal medicine, and other fields. Additionally, you can choose to work in the public or private sectors, in laboratories, with corporations, or independently. How you specialize while studying will make a big difference, so be sure to consider your long-term goals.

Master in Bioscience and Health Policy

Rice University | Wiess School of Natural Sciences
Campus Full time 2 years September 2018 USA Houston

This degree is geared to train students in bioscience and health policy with the intent of creating new options for science students interested in working in health care management, for the government, or in governmental relations positions at non-profit organizations, industry, and academic institutions. As an interdisciplinary program it aims to equip students with advanced bioscience skills; to teach quantitative skills and data analysis; to equip students with communication and research skills to conduct independent studies enabling them to understand, and formulate public policy recommendations; and to train students how to integrate their science knowledge into creating better policies and practices. [+]

“Science impacts public policy in all important areas and is directly impacted by policies created at the local, state, and national levels. Funding and regulation of science, technology, engineering and math education have a major influence on the quality of the science and engineering workforce. Science is also critically needed to inform policies in areas such as energy and climate change, threats to the environment, and dealing with biological pandemics, to name a few. Sound policy making depends on the policy makers having access to current understanding of science and technology. Thus, graduates from this program who understand science and technology are vital to the policy making process at all levels in government. While scientists are often called upon to testify at hearings, that is no substitute for having technically competent staff and officials who interact with the creation of policies daily. Since government policies influence the business world, companies will need graduates from this program who understand the technical issues as well as the policy-making process.” “The Bioscience and Health Policy track will give students a deep background in biological sciences complemented by courses in sociology, economics and policy studies to foster their understanding of the role of science in policymaking and the role of public policy in science. In addition to science courses, students will take an overview course in Science Policy and Ethics, a management course and a seminar jointly with the students involved in the other tracks. Furthermore direct access to the James A. Baker III... [-]
