Roseman University of Health Sciences is pleased to announce the official launch of our College of Graduate Studies. Applications are now being accepted for our Master of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences (MSPS) and Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (MBS) degrees at the University’s Henderson, Nevada and South Jordan, Utah campuses. The inaugural classes will begin in September.
Roseman’s new master’s programs were created to address the needs of rapidly growing bioscience industries across the Intermountain West. Utah has seen the fastest growth in biopharmaceutical and medical device employment in the country with more than 1,000 life sciences companies, $10 billion in annual sales and employing nearly 35,000 employees, and a projected increase of nearly 1,000 positions in the coming years. Nevada’s growth in the biotech sector has also been robust, with more than 900 bioscience companies attracting nearly $90 million in venture capital. Training qualified scientists to meet this growing demand is critical for continued economic development and diversification in the region.
The College of Graduate Studies Master of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences (MSPS) program is the first-of-its-kind program in Utah and Nevada that offers internships, mentoring, and networking through Roseman’s industry partners, and is designed to prepare entry-level pharmaceutical scientists for work within the biotech, nutraceutical, and pharmaceutical industries. The two-year MSPS program also prepares graduates for doctoral studies and teaching within higher education.
The Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (MBS) program is a 10-month program designed to develop formal skills required in the analysis of biomedical literature and ethical questions that impact the healthcare and research professions. The MBS program also serves as a stepping stone for students seeking advanced degrees in health sciences and research. The MBS program will build students’ knowledge in biomedical sciences to strengthen their academic credentials before applying to medical, dental, or other health sciences schools. Graduates of the MBS program will be offered a guaranteed interview with Roseman’s competitive Doctor of Dental Medicine and Doctor of Pharmacy programs.
Both College of Graduate Studies programs are offered in a “hyflex” modality that allows students to continue working while they complete coursework. This model, both hybrid and flexible, offers synchronous and online instruction with face-to-face learning at either Roseman’s Henderson, Nevada, or South Jordan, Utah campuses. Further, students will be working alongside the accomplished scientists employed by Roseman’s industry partners, such as doTERRA, LFB-USA, JSK Therapeutics, Charles River Labs, and ProCaps Laboratories.
Roseman’s Six-Point Mastery Learning Model™ combined with the ‘hyflex’ modality and hands-on training provided, makes the MBS and MSPS programs distinctive, suited to both the continuing student or working professional. Applied focus on regulatory affairs, organizational behavior and leadership, advanced principles in biomedical sciences, public health, data science, and machine learning will provide graduates with a diverse knowledge base, intellectual maturity, and the skills to thrive in the biosciences industry regardless of what they do next.
