Bioinformatics at University of Arkansas at Little Rock

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock and the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences jointly offer master’s and doctorate degrees in bioinformatics. Combining the academic, clinical, and research resources of UAMS with the computational, scientific, academic, and research capabilities of UALR, this program prepares students to function in an interdisciplinary research environment.

The MS program is built around four cores: bioinformatics, biostatistics/modeling/simulation, information/computer science, and the life sciences. Students must complete thirty eight (38) credit hours unless they are granted an advanced placement with a relevant graduate degree in a related field, thereby reducing the credit requirement to 32. The MS program includes regular coursework, seminars, lab rotations and a Master’s Capstone Project. The PhD degree requires the completion of an MS degree in bioinformatics and an additional 36 credits of research and seminar.

Effective Spring 2012 students may choose a new option in medical and health informatics.
