Graduate programs

A complete listing of advanced degree programs including links to departments, programs, contact information and application requirements can be found at

Graduate programs offering Master of Science and doctoral training in the School of Medicine include:

The Department of Human and Molecular Genetics offers a Master of Science in Genetic Counseling (M.S.) and the Department of Epidemiology and Community Health offers the Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) degree. Both of these degree programs are accredited by the appropriate national organizations.

The Department of Human and Molecular Genetics offers a combined degree program that pairs the M.S. in Genetic Counseling and the Ph.D. in Human Genetics. The school partners with the School of Allied Health Professions to offer combined Anatomy and Neurobiology/physical therapy track and Physiology/physical therapy track Ph.D. programs.

Recognizing that graduate education should prepare students for a variety of career options, and that developments in the basic sciences have expanded the breadth of scholarship, the school has developed approaches to interdisciplinary education, particularly in the areas of neuroscience, molecular biology and genetics, immunology, and structural biology.

A two-semester post-baccalaureate certificate program offering training for students seeking admission to professional school (i.e., School of Medicine, School of Dentistry) is available as the Pre-medical Graduate Health Sciences Certificate.

The VCU Bulletin is in transition! As we move from this first iteration of our online Bulletin to a new product and process, what you find on this website is information for the 2014-15 academic year.

While much of the curricular information remains the same, changes that were approved with the effective date of fall 2015 will not be reflected on this website. Prospective students may wish to contact the school or department that administers their program of interest in order to discuss the most current curriculum and concentration options.

Enrolled students who are completing their studies under an effective Bulletin may continue to access the archives at, where past Bulletins are available to reference or download.

Our anticipated launch of the new VCU Bulletin is July 2015. To follow our progress, visit the new Bulletin blog.
