MSc in Medical Science

Top 19 Masters of Science in Medical Science 2019

Medical Science

An MSc, or Master of Science, is a degree awarded to students who successfully complete the coursework and other requirements set forth for the mastery of a given topic. Earning this degree equips you to move on to a career or additional graduate study through a doctorate program.

What is an MSc in Medical Science? An MSc in Medical Science is a generalized degree program that solidifies a student’s understanding of the multifaceted scientific study of medicine. The program is typically designed to give students the training needed to work in a variety of medical settings that utilize scientific processes. Courses you might expect to take include Anatomy and Physiology, Medical Literature, Medical Data Interpretation, and Biology and Chemistry. These all work in conjunction with laboratory experiences to give you the knowledge needed to work confidently in a medical setting.

The program will likely benefit students who are interested in working in medicine but unsure of which exact field. Since the degree focuses on general knowledge, the scientific principles taught can be applied to nearly any opportunity or setting in which laboratory work is required.

Costs for the program differ based on a number of variables. The admissions office at the school you hope to attend can give you an estimated cost of attendance, however.

An MSc in Medical Science will likely qualify you for positions working in medical laboratories. Since you will learn about medicine as well as scientific theories, you can apply your expertise to take on issues such as stem cell research, microbiology, pharmaceutical development and epidemiology in the laboratory. Companies in these fields are all likely to have opportunities that will fit your experience and knowledge. If you want to seek work outside a laboratory, however, you may be able to write or teach at the high school or college level.

Pursuing an MSc in Medical Science part time or online may be possible through some programs. To learn more, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
