Combine the rigor of molecular biology research with business fundamentals to fast track a career in biotechnology.
USF's campus is uniquely situated among the greatest concentration of biotechnology activity in the world, with over 200 private and public biotech companies thriving around the San Francisco Bay Area. Opportunity is right outside our door. In fact, we reached near 100% job placement for students from our last three cohorts of graduating students.
All required classes are held in the late afternoon to evening, allowing students to continue in their full-time jobs or find part-time or full-time jobs in industry while enrolled in our program.
The Professional Science Master’s (PSM) Degree
PSMs are graduate programs in which students pursue advanced training in the sciences while developing highly sought-after business skills. Each PSM degree is developed in concert with employers as preparation for science-based careers in innovative organizations and industries. Since most biologists are trained with few or no business tools, the PSM offers more versatile training than a traditional Master of Science degree.
