Developing Knowledge for Health-Related Research
The Penn State Master of Science in Public Health Sciences is a 30-credit degree program that provides the knowledge and insight required for careers in health-related research.
The name of this program is expected to change soon. The impending change would result in the program being named the Penn State Master of Science in Clinical Research, effective in Fall 2019.
This change will affect some of the curriculum, but the program will remain a 30-credit degree.
Any questions about this change can be directed to Mardi Sawyer at email@example.com.
