Program Description

The FDA defines Regulatory Science (RS) as the "science of developing new tools, standards, and approaches to assess the safety, efficacy, quality, and performance of FDA-related products."

Both regulated industry and regulatory agencies need professionals who understand the complex integration of regulations, quality practices, and scientific knowledge required to bring regulated healthcare products to market.

The new Master of Science in Pharmaceutical Regulatory Sciences (PRS) addresses the immediate need for professionals well versed in Regulatory Science. The curriculum offers courses from pharmaceutical science and RAQA (Regulatory Affairs and Quality Assurance), bridging the gaps in knowledge that often exists between these areas.

Pharmaceutical science courses focus on the core science principles involved in the development and manufacturing of therapeutic products. RAQA courses provide a strong framework of regulations and quality practices, addressing scientific methods needed to assure safety, efficacy, quality, and consistent performance.

The curriculum draws upon the School’s world-renowned MS program in RAQA. Courses are taught by pharmaceutical scientists actively engaged in research as well as industry experts currently working in R&D, drug development, RA, manufacturing, and validation.

Individuals pursuing this graduate program must have strong science backgrounds which include an undergraduate or graduate degree in the hard sciences.

Courses are offered online on weeknights during three semesters a year. The program may be pursued on a part-time basis, enabling working professionals to earn a degree while being employed full-time. Through careful planning, the degree may be finished within two to three years.
