Master’s Degree Curriculum

Beginning in fall semester 2014, the Master of Science in Aerospace Medicine curriculum will be significantly improved. New courses have been developed which will provide a greater exposure to space medicine and operational aerospace medical support. Additionally, an enhanced concentration on aerospace medicine research will be incorporated. All course numbers will change, and a two-year program of study will be available for interested students. Additional details will be forthcoming. Students matriculating to the program in fall semester 2014 are encouraged to contact the Division of Aerospace Medicine with any questions they may have.
