The curriculum is comprised of courses addressing fundamental aspects of basic, clinical, and translational research. These include state-of-the-art methodology for the design of basic science research and clinical trial protocols, Federal policies and regulations that address research with animals and human subjects, identifying and leveraging funding from public and private sources, especially for translational research, commercialization, and team leadership and management skills.

Multiple educational methods specifically tailored to suit particular programmatic goals and objectives will be used including didactic, evidence-based, team-based, as well as experiential learning.  The program consists of 6 required courses, 2 electives, and a mentored thesis, totaling 30 credits and is generally anticipated to take two years to complete. The MSCTS is tailored specifically for those intending to pursue clinical or translational research as a major component of their career plan.  For those who do not anticipate conducting research in the future but want a greater understanding of the field, a Certificate option is available.  This option consists of 18 credits composed of the required courses, can be completed in one year, and does not require the mentored thesis component. 

Classes are offered primarily in the late afternoon or evening to accommodate working students. Students can complete the program requirements in two years, although this time frame may be extended for part-time students.
