The two-year Master of Science in Biological Science program is designed to help students enhance their academic credentials for application to medical or other health professional schools. The program provides students with the opportunity to improve their academic science background and helps them prepare for their MCAT or improve current MCAT scores.
Master of Science in Biological Science Curriculum
The curriculum offers graduate-level biological science coursework, undergraduate review courses in physics, chemistry, and organic chemistry, a community outreach course, and an MCAT preparation and review course, currently taught by Princeton Review. The undergraduate level review courses in physics and chemistry are designed to help with the physical science section of the MCAT.

Admissions to Drexel University College of Medicine's MD Program
We are excited to announce that Drexel University College of Medicine will make available a minimum of 25 seats in its entering medical school class to be competitively selected from students in the Philadelphia and Sacramento Interdepartmental Medical Science program and the Master of Science in Biological Science and Master of Science in Medical Science programs.
In order to receive the master of science degree student must have a 3.0 graduate GPA and grades of C or higher in all program coursework.
Master of Science in Biological Science Admissions
Applicants to the Master of Science in Biological Science program must have already fulfilled undergraduate pre-medical requirements and demonstrated mastery of the material at a minimum grade of C or better. These requirements include a year of biology, chemistry, physics and organic chemistry, including respective laboratory sections. Applicants are required to submit official MCAT scores if the exam was taken, or general GRE scores in lieu of the MCAT. MCAT scores of 17 to 27 and GRE scores in the 70th percentile are acceptable for application to the program. An undergraduate math/science and overall GPA of 3.0 are appropriate for application. The program does not have cut offs for GPA, MCAT and/or GRE scores, but it is required that applicants are showing a marked improvement in their academic history. Health care–related experiences, community service, research, leadership and extracurricular activities are also taken into consideration with the application.
