Regulatory science professionals are in demand. A career in regulatory affairs can take many paths, e.g., clinical trials, drug development, food safety, medical device advancement, pharmaceutical research, or chemistry manufacturing and controls. Students in SDSU's Master of Science, and Advanced Certificate in Regulatory Affairs programs build foundational knowledge on laws, regulations, and good manufacturing processes mandated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and its international counterparts. Courses are delivered fully online as nine-week special sessions, designed to afford students a high degree of flexibility in integrating their studies with work and other commitments.
The Center for Regulatory Science is located in SDSU's College of Sciences. For program information visit regsci.sdsu.edu, where you can see the requirements for the master's degree and advanced certificate, course descriptions, and application information. For any additional questions, call (619) 594-6030.
International students may pursue the degree from their home country or within the U.S. at the same tuition rate as local students. However, the Regulatory Science program does not sponsor F1 student visas.
Students can enroll in courses before being admitted to the University. Four courses (12 units) can be transferred into the RA master's program and one course (3 units) can be transferred into the RA advanced certificate program. View the course schedule.
This WASC-accredited program focuses on laws, regulations, and good manufacturing processes mandated by regulatory agencies, such as the FDA.
The Advanced Certificate is a four-course subset of the MS degree program. All courses are transferable to the MS degree.
