Master of Science in Health Sciences
Saint Louis University's Maser of Science in Health Sciences program is designed for individuals with an undergraduate degree, preferably in a health sciences discipline. The MSHS is a two-year, 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. The program may also serve as a preparatory for entrance into medical school, dental school or other graduate and professional programs. Students will complete a significant research project suitable for publication in a peer-reviewed journal, professional presentation or scholarly equivalent by program completion. The ultimate goal of the program is to advance students' knowledge of health sciences fields and critical inquiry.
The length of time required to complete the MSHS program is research-topic dependent and determined in consultation with a faculty research mentor. An accelerated 12-month completion option is available for students who identify a research project conducive to a completion within this timeframe. Applicants must work with the Program Director, Elizabeth A. Gockel-Blessing, PhD, to determine program completion option, to secure a faculty research mentor prior to program admission. Dr. Gockel-Blessing may be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (314) 977-8501. For admissions processes and requirements, visit slu.edu/health-sciences-ms.
