The Master of Science (MS) degree is awarded for demonstrated competence in the anatomical sciences. This is a 12-month program that begins with intensive training in human gross anatomy in the summer term. Students must complete a minimum of 32 units of graduate-level courses (500 or higher) beyond the baccalaureate degree, and maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0.

Students complete 16 units from courses in Human Gross Anatomy (CNB 501a , CNB 501b ), Microscopic Anatomy (CNB 511a , CNB 511b ) and Neuroanatomy (CNB 521 ), equivalent to medical school instruction. They receive 7 units of additional specialized training in Human Skeletal Anatomy (CNB 504 ) and participate in the Cell and Neurobiology Seminar (CNB 550 ). Students must take 9 additional units from the following list of courses: Advanced Regional Anatomy (CNB 502  / CNB 503 ), Systems Physiology and Disease I and II (CNB 572  /CNB 573 ), Directed Research (CNB 590 ), Special Topics (CNB 599 ).
