    Lots of Canadian schools offer one year M.A. programs in the humanities. Actually, it's 3 terms, with each term being four months. If you want to fastrack and do it in a calendar year, most schools will let you.

    Two schools that I know of for sure:

    University of Windsor: www.uwindsor.ca (Windsor is a border city, right next to Detroit, so you can stay in good ol' USA if you want and just commute - lots of students do so).

    Unversity of Western Ontario www.uwo.ca (they think they're the Harvard of the north, but they are not. They are still an excellent university, though)

    C.

    there's a 1 year masters program at Northwestern in Neurobiology/Physiology. However, previous research experience is strongly recommended. I'm actually considering this program if I don't get accepted this time around. App deadline is March 31 for fall of 2003.

    In Canada you can do almost any master's program in a year if you work hard, and include both summers... they are typically two-year programs with a regular courseload, and one-year programs with a lot of work. A good backup to medicine, because if you get in the first year then you can finish the master's in time, and if you don't, you can stretch the master's a second year.

    Biffer, I think the Hahnemann masters is two years......the first year is post-bacc, then if you do your second year, you get a masters.

    This is true. Hahnemann's (Drexel) masters in Medical Science is two years. The first year is a post-bac.

    Howdy.

    There are quite a few one year masters programs at the Hopkins School of Public Health; this includes more research based areas such as immunology and biochem. Check it out at www.jhsph.edu. Other public health schools may offer one year masters programs as well.

    Good luck in your search!

    Hi Biffer -

    Hope this will be a useful link to master programs which you are looking for. A list of master programs is provided at the end of the web page. It also includes post-bac programs as well.
