A Professional Science Master's (PSM) is an reasonably new (about a decade old) graduate degree designed to allow students to pursue advanced training in science or mathematics, while simultaneously developing workplace skills highly valued by employers. PSM programs consist of two years of academic training in an emerging or interdisciplinary area, along with a professional component that may include internships and "cross-training" in workplace skills, such as business, communications, and regulatory affairs.

Biology and Biotechnology
In the area of biology and biotechnology there are a growing number of PSM programs to choose from. Interested students should refer to the Professional Science Masters online resource for confirmation and possible updates to this list.
