HBCU in North Carolina to Launch a New Master’s Degree Program in Industrial Biosciences

The Graduate College at historically Black North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University in Greensboro has announced that it will offer a professional science master’s (PSM) degree program in industrial biosciences, beginning this coming fall.

The new degree program will involve a combination of advanced training in the sciences along with additional coursework for training in business, management,  and communication. Students in the university’s specialized program will pursue advanced training and excel in science or math without having to obtain a Ph.D. and will develop highly valued business skills. Faculty within the department of biology at the university have been coordinating the industrial biosciences PSM curriculum with area professionals from industry to make sure students will be engaged and receive instruction on the most relevant and current concepts.

Scott Harrison, organizer of the new master’s degree program and an assistant professor in the department of biology, stated that “the dynamic frontiers of biomedical research and biotechnology require that graduates not only have strong competencies in biomedical protocol design and data analysis, but also in project management. Our PSM program provides an opportunity to jointly develop acumen in both science and business in a graduate experience structured around industry related projects.”
