Master of Science in Immunology

Master of Science: 36.0 semester credits

About the Program

The MS in Immunology is designed to prepare students for careers in basic discovery, translational, and clinical research pertaining to infectious and inflammatory disease and other immunologic problems pursued in government, industry and academic environments.

The focus of the program will be to train participants in various aspects of research related to immunology and inflammatory disease, in particular, research and development relevant to new immunodiagnostics, immunotherapeutics, and vaccines to prevent and/or treat infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, influenza, malaria, and other viral, bacterial, parasitic, and fungal pathogens.

Special attention will be given to the study of:

  • immunutherapeutic and vaccine target identification;
  • immune response mechanisms;
  • immunomodulators and immune response modifiers;
  • vaccine discovery and development;
  • immunologic redundancy; and
  • innate and adaptive immune escape mechanisms.


Expertise in animal model development and use, basic discovery, and biological containment laboratories will also be emphasized.

The MS in Immunology encompasses two years of required and elective courses and a comprehensive research internship completed during the two-year training program. The internship will encompass three specific areas of research:

  • the basic discovery of innate and adaptive immune response mechanisms;
  • the translational research centered in therapeutic and prevention vaccine development or the development of immunomodulatory strategies; and
  • the clinical immunology research arena.

The program is designed for applicants from a number of different academic and career backgrounds, allowing for flexibility for incoming students at a variety of levels. Most course work is offered in the late-afternoon or evenings. In addition to the standard pathway, students may complete their degree requirements in a more compact time frame, or they may select a part-time pathway  to permit the simultaneous pursuit of other activities. 

Admission Requirements

For acceptance into the Master of Science in Immunology program, the applicant must have completed a four-year biology or chemistry-based BA or BS degree program with undergraduate coursework in biology, microbiology, immunology, chemistry, biochemistry, mathematics, and/or other related subjects. Although a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.00 is strongly desired, an applicant with a lower cumulative GPA will be considered if other strengths are apparent in the application.

To be considered for acceptance, an applicant must provide the following as part of a complete online application for admission:

   Official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended

   A current Curriculum Vitae (C.V.) or resume

   References from at least three instructors or professionals

Although standardized test scores are not required for admission, official copies of scores from the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) will be considered if submitted as part of the application.

International applicants (non-United States citizens) must meet the same requirements for admission as students from the United States. In addition to the above requirements, applicants whose native language is not English must demonstrate the ability to speak, write, and understand the English language by submitting an acceptable score from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing System (IELTS).

Acceptance into the program will be decided by considering the sum of the applicant's undergraduate curriculum, cumulative GPA, GRE/MCAT scores, recommendation letters, and relevant research and professional experience.
