Program Overview

In the Heart of Biotech: Bay Area Internships

Internships are a key feature of the program. The San Francisco Bay Area is at the center of biotechnology in the United States. These internships have often led to full-time positions for our students after completion of the program.


A PSM Program Developed With Employers

Our professional science master's (PSM) program gives students 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.
