  • The PSM programs are designed for STEM Bachelor’s degree holders to be empowered with Master’s degree and work experience relevant to the industries in the region. At this point all PSM graduates work in their field and are employed often before they graduate. Some graduates have continued to PhD programs and MD/ PhD programs.
    This program was initiated by Council of Graduate Schools and Sloan Foundation.
    The Professional Science Master’s (PSM) is an innovative, new graduate degree designed to allow students to pursue advanced training in science or mathematics, while simultaneously developing workplace skills highly valued by employers. PSM programs consist of two years of academic training in an emerging or interdisciplinary area, along with a professional component that may include internships and “cross-training” in workplace skills, such as business, communications, and regulatory affairs. All have been developed in concert with employers and are designed to dovetail into present and future professional career opportunities.

    Short Description of Organization:

    "Temple University is one of the largest universities in the United States -- and one of its most diverse and comprehensive public research institutions. Temple University also provides extensive opportunities in professional education, including dentistry, law, medicine, pharmacy, and podiatric medicine. The University ™s location in Philadelphia is a key element in forging a unique student experience. As the fifth largest U.S. city and second largest on the East Coast, the œCity of Brotherly Love  is a great place to be when books are put away and it's time to play.

    Temple has grown tremendously since its founding by Dr. Russell H. Conwell in 1884. Chartered as Temple College in 1888, it was incorporated as Temple University in 1907. Then, in 1965, by the Act of the Legislature of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Temple University became a state-related institution in the Commonwealth System of Higher Education.

    Temple was designated one of only 99 public and private universities in the nation as a œRU/H: Research Universities (high research activity)  by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching in its 2010 classification. Through various schools and colleges, the University offers more than 200 master ™s and doctoral degree programs and over 60 graduate certificates.

    Ours is a comprehensive public research university with a total student enrollment of approximately 37,000; more than 9,000 are graduate and professional students. We offer our programs at four regional campuses, including Main Campus, the Health Sciences Center Campus, and Center City Campus in Philadelphia, as well as at a major suburban campus at Ambler, PA. We also operate education centers in Fort Washington, PA, and Harrisburg, PA, and maintain international campuses in Tokyo, Japan, and Rome, Italy.

    Research is central to both master ™s and doctoral programs and provides faculty and students with opportunities to contribute to the development of new knowledge. Faculty members ™ research and other creative activities stimulate intellectual development and prepare graduates for a wide range of careers. At Temple University, opportunity abounds for students and faculty to engage in research and creative work. Because research is such a high priority at the university, a stimulating, supportive environment is fostered."
