    Anatomical Sciences

    The Anatomical Sciences major is ideal for the graduate student who is pursuing a career in an anatomy research, teaching or medical school. All courses are a structured preparatory route for future entry to professional school or a doctoral level graduate program.


    Students will participate in foundational graduate courses that will help them to understand and use the primary literature of Anatomical Sciences. In addition to graduate level Anatomical Science courses, students will also study alongside first-year medical school students at the DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (DCOM) in areas such as Histology and potentially Neuroanatomy.


    Thirty-six graduate credit hours are the minimum requirement. Please note that in the event a student has course deficiencies in their undergraduate preparation, it may alter the curriculum of their graduate curriculum. This may require additional time for successful completion of this major.

    For more information regarding the Anatomical Sciences major please contact the Office of Admissions at masterofscience@LMUnet.edu.


    The Core Curriculum consists of 20 graduate credit hours.
