HPU will give preference to applicants who demonstrate the potential to be successful in a graduate level curriculum; thus, a consistent or an up-trending undergraduate academic track record will allow you to successfully transition into master’s level expectations. In addition to academic success, students must demonstrate high level interest in experiential learning, leadership, and service. Finally, HPU Biomedical Sciences will work to enhance a mission to diversify the STEM workforce; thus, enrollment of students from various backgrounds is essential.
