Biomedical Sciences

Among the graduate degree programs at the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM), the Biomedical Sciences (BIMS) graduate program spans the five academic departments of the College and currently offers the degree options of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Master of Science Thesis Option (THO) and Master of Science Non-Thesis Option (NTO).

A major objective of graduate education through any CVM graduate degree is to emphasize critical thinking, creativity, analysis, and good scientific judgment. The CVM faculty members accomplish this by fostering a classroom and laboratory atmosphere that is investigatory, challenging, confidence-building, and scholarly. Beyond the extensive mentorship available from graduate faculty members active in ongoing research projects, students participate in CVM and Texas A&M-sponsored symposia and conferences, as well as regional and national meetings.

The graduate student experience involves additional engagement with professionals and peers through the Graduate Student Association (GSA), opportunities to develop effective teaching skills through the Center for Teaching Excellence, and involvement opportunities in a number of student organizations.
