UGA introduces online professional master’s program
The University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine will offer a comparative biomedical master’s program online starting this fall.
The University of Georgia is now offering a non-thesis online master’s program in comparative biomedical sciences. The interdisciplinary program, with courses in lab animal research, clinical concepts, pathology, human and veterinary anatomy, and cell biology, among others, is intended to build a foundation for students planning to pursue careers in veterinary or human medicine, dentistry, or biomedical engineering or biomedical research.
Thirty credits earned over one to two years are required to graduate from the program.
Lisa K. Nolan, Georgia Athletics Association distinguished professor and dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine, says the program could not have been developed at a better time. “Students in this program will receive a broad curriculum of knowledge that will be of great benefit to them in their pursuits—all from the safety of their homes,” she says in a press release announcing the program.
Applications for the fall 2020 semester are due July 1. For more information, visit the UGA College of Veterinary Medicine’s website.
