Physiology MS Coursework

Curriculum

PHM 827: Physiology/Pharmacology of Excitable Cells (4 cr)
PSL 828: Cellular/Integrative Physiology (4 cr)
BMB 801: Molecular Biology and Protein Structure (3 cr)
BMB 802: Metabolic Regulation& Molecular Endocrinology (3)
PSL 910: Cell and Molecular Physiology (4 cr)
PSL 950: Topics in Physiology (3 X 1 cr/sem = 3 cr total)
PSL 899: Master's Thesis Research (min. 6 required) 9 cr

Required Total Credits = 30 cr

A minimum of 16 credits must be at the 800-900 level. A student entering the Master's Program who already has successfully completed any of these required courses must select additional, advanced courses, with the approval of their Guidance Commitee and the Director of Research and Graduate Studies. The student might choose, or be asked by his/her Guidance Committee, to take additional courses based on their background and the relevance of the course to their research project.

A student must maintain a 3.0 cummulative grade-point average for all courses counting toward the Master's degree (University regulation). In addition, a student must not accumulate more than 2 grades below 3.0 in courses earning credit toward the Master's degreee (Department requlation). If either of these criterion is not met, the student will be dis-enrolled from the Program.
