What are Post Baccalaureate and Special Masters Programs?

What are Post Baccalaureate and Special Masters Programs?

Post-baccalaureate programs are typically designed for students who already have a bachelors degree in a non-science field and wish to take or retake the prerequisites courses required for their intended professional school (Medical, Pharmacy, Optometry, etc.). There are many types of post-baccalaureate programs such as academic enhancers and career changers (described in further detail below). Many programs offer a post-baccalaureate ‘certificate’ upon completion of the program.

Special Masters Programs (SMPs) are master degree programs geared towards preparing students for their intended professional school by taking relevant graduate/professional school level courses. Some SMP curriculums consist of courses that are taken along side graduate, PhD, or professional school (medical, dental, etc.) students, allowing admissions committees to directly measure and compare students’ proficiencies at these higher levels. Other programs consist of courses that are strictly offered to the students in that particular SMP.

Keep in mind that various Special Masters and Post-baccalaureate programs offer linkage, where qualified students are offered guaranteed admission or interview to affiliated professional schools upon meeting certain requirements.

Which Post-Bacc/Special Master Program is right for me?

Which Post-Bacc/Special Master Program is right for me? 

Post bacc programs typically have designated focus which can be academic enhancer, career changer, and educationally/economically disadvantaged or underrepresented minority students (URM). Select your post-bacc program depending on the focus suited for you.

Academic enhancers (AE) are intended for pre-health students who wish to raise their overall GPA by retaking relevant prerequisite courses or other science-based pre-health courses. Keep in mind that depending on your program, your courses may or may not be factored into your undergraduate GPA.
Career changers (CC) are for students who have obtained a bachelors degree in a non-science or health related field and have decided for a career change to a health profession. These students in career changer programs take the necessary prerequisites for admission to their intended professional school.
Educationally/economically disadvantaged or underrepresented minority (EED) focus programs offer qualified students preparation and help to become competitive applicants to professional school. The goal of these programs are usually to increase diversity in the work force and provide opportunities for disadvantaged students.

Special Masters Programs offer various types of masters degrees. These programs may offer a thesis or non-thesis track, which are decided upon a student’s interest. Typically, thesis based programs take 2 years to complete; the first year focused on coursework and the second year dedicated to research, while non-thesis tracks take about one year to complete. Courses vary depending on the program curriculum, and help students build a solid foundation to prepare for professional school. SMP degrees include but are not limited to:

MS in Physiology
MS in Biomedical Sciences
MS in Biological Sciences
MS in Medical Sciences

There are a number of things to take into consideration when choosing a SMP; examples are listed below. When researching SMP programs, take a look at their website to get a good feel of their curriculum and what is expected.

  • Tuition and fees
  • Location
  • Courses offered
  • Length of program
  • Admission prerequisites
  • Thesis or non-thesis
  • Student advising

What are the disadvantages of Post-Bacc and Special Masters Programs?

What are the disadvantages of Post-Bacc and Special Masters Programs? 

Post-bacc and SMP programs allow students to improve their credentials and take necessary prerequisite courses, although they may also have their downsides. Again, one thing to keep in mind are the tuition and fees that come along with these programs. Post-bacc programs typically are not covered by financial aid, and many non-degree seeking students pay out-of-pocket per credit. SMP programs are expensive and usually do not offer much in terms of financial aid or grants. Compared to post-bacc programs, SMPs are relatively more competitive to get into. Another previously mentioned disadvantage regarding both Post-bacc and SMP programs is that your scores may not be factored towards your undergraduate GPA. Many application services such as AMCAS (for allopathic medical schools) will separate your undergraduate GPA from your Post-bacc/SMP GPA. In addition to this, admission committees typically weigh your Post-bacc/SMP performances heavily, and performing poorly may heavily hurt your chances for professional school admission. In particular, SMP programs can be seen as “make or break”.
