How to Apply (MS in Clinical Translational Research)

Clinical Research Professionals (CRP) Track

The Master of Science in Clinical & Translational Research - Clinical Research Professionals track (MSCTR-CRP) is designed specifically for clinical research professionals who coordinate, manage, and lead collaborative research projects and clinical trials.

Applicants to the MSCTR-CRP program should possess at least a bachelor’s degree, preferably in the sciences, with a minimum 3.0 or equivalent GPA.

Depending on an applicant’s educational background and work experience, he or she may be required to complete one or more prerequisites in Physiology. If the Admissions Committee determines an applicant does not have a strong science background, the applicant will be required to complete Introduction to Anatomy and Physiology (BIOL-1015) or Anatomy & Physiology I (BIOL-2001C) prior to beginning MSCTR-CRP coursework.

Applications can be submitted at any time throughout the year and, upon acceptance, students can begin the program in any semester.

The deadlines are:

  • Fall Semester: August 9 (Given Fall 2019 will be the MSCTR-CRP program’s first semester, we will be accepting up to 15 students. All other students will be deferred to Spring 2020.)
  • Spring Semester: November 15
  • Summer Semester: April 15
