In the Name of God
Title: Human Genetics
Degree: Master of Science (MS)
The field of Human Genetics is a branch of bio-medical sciences which investigate the chromosome and gene structure of cells and includes main aspects such as Genetic Engineering, Immunogenetics, Population Genetics, Cancer Genetics, Behavioral Genetics, Biochemical Genetics. Master graduates will be able to perform genetic analysis of human cells and detect several chromosomal and gene disorders by taking related courses, participating in research and group activities.
Human Genetics MS degree provide both course and research programs in which students develop their theoretical, communication and practical skills over the broad discipline of Human and Medical Genetics with a special emphasis upon the molecular aspects of subjects. We aim to develop student skills in appreciating and applying the techniques of molecular genetics and cytogenetics to problems in education, research fields and applying their genetic knowledge in laboratory field to provide services.
We develop their analytical and presentational skills and encourage them to integrate the course modules and researches and use the scientific publications of Human Genetics in developing genetics knowledge of the society.
The main mission of this course is providing the student with the necessary disciplines as follow:
