Dean of the College of Biosciences A message from the Dean: The master of science in biomedical sciences program in the College of Biosciences welcomed its first students in August 2005. The master of arts in bioethics program began in June 2007.Both programs are focused on advancing the University’s mission.Recipients of the M.S. in biomedical sciences will be prepared to do research in the life sciences or enter doctoral programs in the health professions. Those who complete the master of arts in bioethics degree will be able to help address emerging issues that pose challenges to traditional thinking about life and death, challenges that come from advances in medicine and the life sciences.Ensuring that we meet these goals for our graduates requires faculty who care about students and students who care about learning.We have both. We have a team of dedicated professionals and associates and highly motivated students, all of whom are committed to the University’s mission. It is my privilege, as Dean of the College of Biosciences, to work with all of them.
