Resolution Number

2008-2009_17

Abstract

We propose to establish a Professional Science Master’s as a new track for a Master’s in Biological Sciences. Using the existing requirements for a Plan II Master’s in Biological Sciences, a curriculum has been devised to allow students to receive a Profession Science Master’s that fulfills the requirements established by the Council of Graduate Schools. This new Master’s track in Biological Sciences will prepare students for jobs in the biotech industry that require skills to interface between upper management and the bench scientists. This unique set of skills is highly valued by scientific companies. The proposed PSM program will have numerous benefits for the students, the university, and local businesses.
