Many people eventually choose careers in reproductive health. The Masters of Science in Reproductive Science and Medicine (MS-RSM) is an 18-month, full-time, terminal Masters of Science degree focusing on mammalian reproductive biology and medicine. The mission of MS-RSM is to provide fundamental reproductive science training with a focus on applications to human health. Program curriculum consists of structured reproductive science coursework, hands-on laboratory instruction, and thesis research. Course topics cover human reproductive development, reproductive endocrinology, fertility management, and human reproductive health and disease. Electives complement core courses and allow students to create areas of specialization and achieve academic breadth. In addition to training with some of the most renowned experts in the field, upon completion of the program, graduates will be prepared for research and technical positions with academic, clinical, and pharmaceutical laboratories. Students will also have a strong foundation for further training to PhD and medical degree programs.
