Kathleen H. Goeppinger, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Midwestern University, is pleased to announce the addition of a new academic college to both the Downers Grove, IL and Glendale, AZ campuses.

The College of Graduate Studies offers degrees on both campuses and upholds academic excellence by pursuing the advancement of knowledge as part of the academic triad of education, research, and service. "Our faculty are embracing and developing a new College that will not only build upon an outstanding track record of teaching and research, but will now also provide non-practitioner graduate degree programs and research that align with our University's mission," said Kyle H. Ramsey, Ph.D., Dean, College of Graduate Studies.

The College of Graduate Studies endeavors to share existing knowledge, to create new knowledge, and to apply knowledge that contributes to improving the health of humans, animals, and the environment through One Health principles and practice. "It is our goal to be a leader in the fields of teaching, research, and service. Opportunities for current and prospective students will expand greatly as we move forward," Dr. Ramsey said.  The College of Graduate Studies currently offers the following degree programs:

  • Master of Biomedical Sciences (M.B.S.)
  • Master of Arts in Biomedical Sciences (M.A.)

Students in the Biomedical Sciences program gain the necessary skills and expertise to pursue careers in research, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical industries, or to become competitive candidates for admission to medical schools or other health professional programs.

The College of Graduate Studies joins other academic colleges at Midwestern University offering degrees in osteopathic medicine, pharmacy, physician assistant studies, dental medicine, podiatric medicine, optometry, physical therapy, occupational therapy, clinical psychology, veterinary medicine, and other healthcare fields.
