The Master of Science degree program is taught online and is designed for students who are employed full-time, have other personal or professional commitments, are self-motivated and goal-oriented, have the ability to work independently, and cannot or do not wish to relocate for a campus-based program. Students can enroll in one or two courses per quarter. All program participation is completed online with no on-campus attendance required. Students are required to have access to a computer and direct Internet access. Contact between faculty and students are conducted primarily through the Internet, e-mail and telephone. Although this program is convenient, it is not an easy route for earning a graduate degree. Our academic standards are high and the curriculum is challenging. Once students begin the degree program, they have up to five (5) years to complete the Master of Science degree. A student who is enrolled part-time, in two courses per quarter, and does not take a leave of absence, can complete the degree in two (2) academic years. Students must follow the standard admissions procedures used at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science.
