Laboratory Animal Science

Much of modern day medicine is indebted to irreplaceable animal research. With the need for technically sophisticated, humane and well-considered use of animals in biomedical research, the demand for qualified individuals in the field of laboratory animal science is very high, especially in universities, pharmaceutical companies, and biotechnology companies.  In order to advance within this highly competitive industry, it is essential to have the training advantage that a specialized master's degree provides. Therefore, Eastern Virginia Medical School has launched this new online Master's of Laboratory Animal Science Program.

The Master program is delivered almost entirely online, except one week Internship course in the summer semester between years one and two of the program, when all students are required to join us on EVMS campus for hands on trainings. Also, almost all online course material delivery and study times are asynchronous for maximum felixibilty in our master level education, except few hours of synchronized online meetings for Journal Club and Graduate Seminar courses.
