Many of our degrees can be completed on an accelerated timeline by Georgetown University B.S. in Human Science students. Human Science students can apply to a BGE master’s program in their junior year and start taking master’s courses in their senior year in order to earn the Master of Science in one semester after their Bachelor of Science.
Note: This is the typical accelerated master’s plan timeline, but some programs will have different distributions of HSCI and master’s courses to accommodate schedule conflicts.
How to Apply
Highly motivated HSCI students with a minimum GPA of 3.5 in the major are eligible to apply. Visit your chosen program’s Admissions page for prerequisites and instructions.
- Students should apply to an accelerated master’s program no later than January 15 of their junior year.
- Students applying to the M.S. in Bioinformatics or the M.S. in Integrative Neuroscience must apply no later than October 1 of their junior year, as they will need to adjust their junior spring course schedule due to course conflicts with master’s courses.
Students who wish to apply should inquire with Sumaira Akber, Assistant Dean, School of Health.
The following Master of Science degrees offer accelerated programs:
Emphasizes the core concepts of biochemistry and molecular biology as applied to biomedical sciences and biotechnology.
Broadens students’ knowledge of prevention, detection and response to chemical, biological and radiological threat agents.
Explores the development and application of computational tools and techniques for the collection, analysis, management and visualization of biological data, as well as modeling and simulation methods for the study of biological systems.
Encompasses an extensive integrated overview of neuroscience, statistics, experimental design and technical approaches. Students can take courses to focus in science policy or laboratory research.
For students looking to enhance their training in the fundamentals of pharmacology, physiology and biochemistry through coursework and cutting-edge, lab-based research.
Designed to prepare students for careers in medicine, dentistry and allied health professions, as well as careers in research, education and administration involving biomedical sciences.
Introduces students to advances in the “-omics”; to emerging tools in the field and their use in clinical practice; and to the legal, social and ethical implications of research and clinical practice in the era of systems medicine.
Provides interdisciplinary training in the study of tumor biology as well as laboratory experience. Students gain a comprehensive understanding of the mechanisms of cancer progression and the clinical challenges of treatment.
