Thesis Research

From the beginning we have been committed to original research in genetic counseling. Master of Science Thesis Research strives to improve practice, integrate new technologies in patient care and appreciate the psychosocial impact of genetics within our patients’ lives.

We encourage you to identify an area of interest during your first year of Thesis Seminar as we guide you in creating your own original research project. We will help you to build a committee of experts in various disciplines to offer direction in your masters research. While you conduct your research, you'll have the educational support of the genetic counseling faculty and the technological support of a Tier 1 research university. 

Thesis research has generated many published abstracts, presented papers and publications over the program's history. The resulting work is presented at Discover USC as you conclude your senior year and projects are often presented by the new graduate at the National Society of Genetic Counselors Annual Conference or other professional society conference.

As you prepare for graduation, your family and friends will be alongside you and the faculty as you present your masters research during our end of year Thesis Presentations Event.
