Master's Program

Interdisciplinary Master's Program
An interdisciplinary program leading to the Master of Science degree is offered through the Roswell Park Graduate Division of the University at Buffalo. This research-intensive program is designed to give students a multidisciplinary experience along with a solid academic background in cancer biology.  This degree program is ideal preparation for students seeking to enter research careers or as preparation for subsequent Ph.D. training.  While not designed specifically to facilitate subsequent entry into professional schools, a number of our M.S. graduates have found this training to improve their prospects for admission to medical and dental schools.

General GRE scores are required of all applicants.  All international applicants must submit results of either the TOEFL (minimum acceptable score: 79) or the IELTS (minimum acceptable score 6.5 overall with no individual sub-score below 6.0).

The online application is now open!  Simply click "Apply Now" to access the application system.  The application deadline for fall 2017 admission is March 1, 2017.  Students wishing to have applications considered after the application deadline must contact the program director.

Please have GRE and TOEFL scores sent to the University at Buffalo using ETS code 2925.  No department code is required.

NEWS!  We once again will participate in the "Biomed Virtual Grad Fairs" hosted by CareerEco.  This is a great opportunity to chat online with Roswell Park staff about our outstanding Ph.D. and M.S. training programs.  There is no cost to students who wish to take part in this event.  The next Virtual Grad Fail will occur on September 13, 2016.  Click on the banner below for further information or to register.
