A New Type of Training for Careers in the New Century
In response to the national priority
for training graduate students at the master's level for careers outside
of academia, the University of Connecticut is pleased to launch three
new Professional Master's Degrees in Science and Mathematics. Our innovative
programs are hybrids between the traditional coursework degree (emphasizing
formal theoretical coursework) and the traditional thesis degree (emphasizing
original research project), incorporating the best of both. This new Professional Science Masters program was established with support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
The new degrees provide substantial cross-training for successful performance in business, governmental or corporate environments. Each program incorporates elements of laboratory or problem-solving experiences, computer literacy, and communication skills. We are currently recruiting qualified and highly motivated students.
