The Alabama Commission on Higher Education has given the green light to a new master’s degree program that Troy University will partner with the Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine to provide.
The new program, the master of science in biomedical sciences degree, will be offered at Troy’s main campus, with anatomical sciences classes taught at ACOM.
The new master’s degree program will be the only one of its’ kind in the state and will help prepare students for entry into medical and other health science professional schools, according to Troy officials.
Troy first announced the new master’s degree program in July. The program should be up and running by August 2014.
In addition to the new master of science in biomedical sciences degree, ACHE recently approved a new master of social sciences and master of arts in history program. ACHE has also approved the graduate certificate in health practice management program.
