Undergraduate Program

Five-Year BS/MS Program

BME majors contemplating graduate work should consider the five-year, BS/MS program. This program provides the opportunity for a smooth transition between undergraduate and graduate study. Program enrollment is competitive and students may apply for admission during their senior year. It offers the chance for more advanced study and the completion of a course-work Master's degree in one year. (Note that a thesis masters is expected to take one and a half to two years.) Partial tuition scholarships are available for the masters program. All full-time MS students are expected to serve as teaching assistants for one semester.

Students should consult the UR Graduate Studies Official Bulletin for the MS degree requirements and they should meet with a faculty member to develop an integrated BS/MS program of study.
