Marquette University- Admissions, Fees, Courses, and More - bridgettpayseur - 08-21-2013
Marquette is a Catholic Jesuit University located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Located on a 93 acre campus in the University Hill district, Marquette offers all of the big city benefits available in Milwaukee. Life on campus at Marquette University offers an endless supply of activities, events and attractions. There are about 250 student organizations through which students can hone leadership skills, develop a commitment to service and deepen faith.
Marquette began as a dream of the Most Rev. Martin J. Henni, the first Catholic bishop of Milwaukee, but it took a trip overseas to find an investor to make it a reality. Belgian businessman Guillaume Joseph DeBuey promised $16,000 for the proposed "academy of learning." It was hardly enough to fund the establishment of a college but just enough to keep Bishop Henni's dream alive for the next eight years until he could purchase a parcel of land on a hill topping today's North 10th and West State streets.
Nearly three decades passed before the doors of Marquette College, a small liberal arts school for men named after Rev. Jacques Marquette, S.J., opened on Aug. 28, 1881. Bishop Henni died just two days later, one might guess satisfied that his work was finished. The mission of Marquette University is the search for truth, the discovery and sharing of knowledge, the fostering of personal and professional excellence, the promotion of a life of faith, and the development of leadership expressed in service to others.
First year students in engineering, nursing, or the first year honors program can live inspecial housing units to develop camaraderie and strong relationships with other students in their respective programs. Mashuda Hall, a sophomore dorm, was once the Coach House Motor Inn, where The Beatles stayed during their tour in 1964.
Marquette University College of Health Sciences offers an undergraduate degree in the program of biomedical sciences. The biomedical sciences major combines human health sciences with the university's distinctive courses in the humanities and social sciences, and provides the intellectual tools and scientific proficiency to succeed in advanced studies in the health sciences. Undergraduate coursework includes many courses often reserved for graduate students, including histology, pharmacology, and molecular pathology. After completing the biomedical sciences degree program, students should be able to explain fundamental concepts in the major areas of biomedical sciences (anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, microbiology, pathology, pharmacology, and molecular pathology). Students should also be able to demonstrate scientific literacy and apply it to contemporary health care issues.
The biochemistry and molecular biology major at Marquette University analyzes the molecular structure and chemistry of biological systems. Discoveries in this discipline are revolutionizing our understanding of living systems, with far-reaching implications for fields such as medicine, agriculture and ecology. Marquette’s program in biochemistry and molecular biology provides an environment that supports both scientific and ethical inquiry in the discipline.
The biology major lives at the leading edge of science, using the latest technology to explore molecular medicine, ecology and the environment, genetic regulation of plant and animal development, microbial physiology and cell dynamics and motility.
All Marquette biological sciences majors take at least three courses taught entirely in the lab by a professor, not teaching assistants — an opportunity few national research universities provide their undergraduate biology majors.
Freshman admission requires High school transcript; ACT or SAT test scores from testing organization or on high school transcript, essay, Counselor Recommendation Form and a list of extracurricular activities.
Undergraduate Tuition: $34,200/year. Marquette offers financial aid in the form of scholarships, grants, and student loans. More than 90% of Marquette students receive some type of financial aid. Students can apply for financial aid by filling out the FAFSAA between January 1st and February 15th.
Graduate students in the Biological Sciences program can choose to focus in Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Developmental Biology, Ecology, Genetics, Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Neurophysiology, or Physiology. The biological sciences graduate program at Marquette University aspires to train experimental scientists capable of teaching and directing independent research by providing a broad theoretical background and an appreciation for the rigor of the scientific method. Students are prepared for employment in faculty positions and research posts in academia and industry.
Marquette University and the Medical College of Wisconsin offer an interdisciplinary program in bioinformatics. The program prepares students for a multidisciplinary career in the biomedical sciences using mathematics, statistics and computer science. It is designed to provide students quantitative tools for analyzing data and problems associated with molecular, cellular, physiological and particularly, genetic systems. Students may select courses from a list of approved courses offered by the following departments at Marquette: Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science; Biology; Biomedical Engineering; and Electrical and Computer Engineering. In addition, courses are offered by the Department of Physiology and the Division of Biostatistics at Medical College of Wisconsin. Admission to this program requires undergraduate transcripts, three letters of recommendation, and a written statement. GRE scores are strongly recommended.
The Graduate School at Marquette University offers a biomedical engineering program as well. The biomedical engineering program is interdisciplinary in nature, involving the application of engineering and mathematics to the solution of problems related to medicine and biology.
Students in the biomedical engineering program can specialize in several different disciplines, including:
M.S.: Bioinstrumentation/Computers, Biomechanics/Biomaterials, Rehabilitation Bioengineering, Systems Physiology
M.E.: Biocomputing, Bioimaging, Bioinstrumentation, Biomechanics, Biorehabilitation
Ph.D.: Bioinstrumentation/Computers, Biomechanics/Biomaterials, Functional Imaging, Rehabilitation Bioengineering, Systems Physiology
More specific areas of research in the biomedical engineering program include: artificial limbs/prostheses, biomaterials, biotelemetry, cell transport and metabolism, cardiac electrophysiology, computers in medicine, functional imaging, head and spinal cord trauma, hemodynamics, human motion analysis, medical and biological image analysis, physiological signal processing, rehabilitation engineering, systems physiology, telerehabilitation, tissue engineering, hard and soft tissue biomechanics and transcutaneous power transfer. The bioengineering program is also a collaborative effort between Marquette University and the Medical College of Wisconsin.
Graduate tuition: $1025/credit hour. Graduate students at Marquette University are supported by teaching assistantships or grant-supported research.
