Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, B.A. to M.S. Accelerated Program

Students at Saint Louis University can complete an undergraduate degree in biology, biochemistry, computer science or mathematics with a Master of Science in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology in a compressed timeframe.

Program Highlights

Significant advantages to this accelerated program include:

  • No need to take the GRE, as students will apply to the accelerated program in the spring of their junior year
  • Double-counting up to 15 credits of coursework simultaneously toward undergraduate and graduate degree requirements
  • Beginning some of the graduate coursework during the final undergraduate year
