Integrating Bioinformatics into Information and Library Science Education Bradley Hemminger, Anne Bauers School of Information and Library Science, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill http://ils.unc.edu/bioinfo Examples ( Pittsburgh , UNC-CH ) Complete Details (Word doc) School Summary School Details
A single department usually grants their degree (for example Master CS with concentration in bioinformatics).
The interdisciplinary approach usually grants degrees from the students home department, and then a specialization in bioinformatics, earned by meeting the additional requirements of the bioinformatics program.
Center & institute programs generally grants a degree from that program (bioinformatics).
Program: Northeastern University (cooperative with Boston University)
Host Department: Bioinformatics
Program Entrance Requirements: Applicants to the MS Program must have earned a baccalaureate degree in a biological science, chemistry, computer science, pharmacy, engineering, nursing, or other related discipline from an accredited college or university.
Program Completion Requirements: All fundamental & core courses, at least one elective, industrial internship
All students will take five core Biomedical Informatics courses (Foundations of Biomedical Informatics and Evidence-Based Medicine, Medical Decision-Support Systems and Machine Learning, Health Care Organization and Management, Bioinformatics for Molecular Biology, Clinical Information Systems). Those who are pursuing an M.S. degree will not be required to take the four associated laboratories, while those who pursue a Ph.D. must do so.
All students will take core courses in the remaining three areas (3 courses for the methods area, 3 for the biomedicine area, and 3 for the informatics area).
