Courses & Special Options for Graduate Students

These lists give you information on BME-specific offerings. For more ideas on what courses to take, the Appendix of the 'Program Requirements' document lists additional course options including many from other departments, listed by research area.

Other course choices may be made by exploring the options for Graduate Minors and Specialization areas. A comprehensive list of specialization areas in which graduate students may consider minoring is maintained by the Graduate School. Some minors recently explored among BME graduate students include Anatomy, Aging, Global Health, Biomedical Clinical and Translational Science, and Humanitarian Engineering

For courses and competitions aimed at business and commercialization, be sure to check out the Center for Entrepreneurship of the Fisher College of Business.
