More About the Program

The M.A. degree program is designed for students with a bachelor's degree who want to improve their academic foundation in the biomedical sciences and graduate as competitive applicants for admissions into professional programs in health care such as medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, podiatry, optometry, and the health sciences.

Midwestern University is familiar with the challenges facing students as they strive to reach their goals of becoming a health care professional. Twenty-five to fifty percent of medical school applicants are not successful each year - not because of inability, but because of the large competitive applicant pool. MWU's one-year MA degree program can help a student stand out among the others. It provides a path for truly dedicated students who not only want to move on into professional programs but are ready to complete those programs with self-confidence and success.
