Saint Louis University

Saint Louis University's Master of Science in Health Sciences (MSHS) program is designed for individuals with an undergraduate degree, preferably in a health sciences discipline, to advance students' knowledge of health sciences fields and critical inquiry. The MSHS is a 36 credit hour degree program that will equip graduates with the tools and skills necessary to assume a variety of roles in health care that may involve teaching, administrative responsibilities and critical inquiry. It is important to note that this program is not an MCAT preparation course. Rather, the program is in alignment with the rigor expected of students in graduate level professional programs. The program has the potential to enhance applications to such programs by way of exposure to direct research. Students will complete a significant research project suitable for publication in a peer-reviewed journal, professional presentation or scholarly equivalent by program completion. This program is currently not accepting students.

Highlights of the Program

  • Students design, implement and write a thesis on a research project suitable for scholarly publication.
  • Students work with MSHS faculty members who are recognized experts and certified/licensed to practice in their respective fields.
  • The program contains six credit hours of elective coursework. Students work with their faculty mentors to select courses germane to their research project.
  • The goal of the program is to advance students' knowledge of health science fields and critical inquiry.
