Greensboro, N.C. (Jan. 18, 2017) – Beginning fall 2017, the Graduate College at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University will offer a Professional Science Master’s (PSM) program in Industrial Biosciences. The nationally certified graduate degree concentration will provide students with advanced skills and knowledge to support commercial development.
“The PSM program in Industrial Biosciences is a carefully developed program,” said Sanjiv Sarin, dean of the Graduate College. “I think it will be very successful in attracting high-quality students from bioscience-related businesses"
The program’s cross-disciplinary approach is in keeping with a growing national movement reflected in over 320 PSM programs around the country established across multiple areas in science and technology. The program is part of a nationwide initiative guided by the National Professional Science Master’s Association. Affiliation of a PSM graduate degree program is based upon review by the PSM National Office.
