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 the industry while enrolled in our two-year program.
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.
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.
