Master's Degree Options

A student enrolled in the PB-PMHPP Certificate Program may choose to couple his/her certificate studies with a master's degree to not only expand the student's learning and professional qualifications, but also to provide additional financial aid options. While students may choose to pursue degrees in any field, there are 3 master's degree options that are directly related to healthcare, complement the pre-medical requirements, and to which the PB-PMHPP may offer facilitated enrollment.

Master of Science in Biotechnology

Bayer School of Natural and Environmental Sciences

Biotechnology brings together the various scientific disciplines to stimulate applied research and the translation of basic science into technology which can be turned into applications and products through technology transfer or entrepreneurial efforts. Specific areas of interest include devices and diagnostics, drug discovery, drug delivery, gene therapy, bioremediation, bioinformatics, microbial engineering, analytical methods, pharmaceutics, compliance, and rehabilitation.

Master of Health Management Systems*

John G. Rangos School of Health Sciences

Health Management Systems is an integration of healthcare, business management, and information systems. As the healthcare delivery system is held to greater accountability, healthcare providers and entities must demonstrate quality outcomes, fiscal responsibility, and efficient and effective practices. To do this, health management systems professionals collect and analyze data, incorporate innovative management techniques, and utilize new technologies to reengineer healthcare. Health management systems professionals are the inventors, innovators, and entrepreneurs for the constantly evolving healthcare delivery system.

Master of Arts in Health Care Ethics

McAnulty College and Graduate School of Liberal Arts

Students who have the majority of their science requirements met or those who are interested in expanding their understanding of social and ethical issues in health care may wish to combine the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate with a Master of Arts in Health Care Ethics. This 30 credit MA program has two required courses involving a general graduate-level introduction to health care ethics and a clinical rotation at a local hospital, as well as 8 elective courses in health care ethics and related topics.
