Admissions for this program have been suspended until further notice.
The Professional Science Master’s degree is a two-year graduate degree designed to fill a management need for technology-based companies, governmental agencies, and non-profit organizations. Students pursue advanced training in science, while simultaneously developing valued business skills. Professional Science Master’s programs combine rigorous study in science or mathematics with coursework in management, policy, or law. All PSM programs emphasize writing and communication skills, and many include project management. Most PSM programs require a final project or team experience, as well as an internship in a business or public sector enterprise.
