David W. King, dean of graduate studies and research at SUNY Oswego, was recently elected president of the National Professional Science Masters Association for 2013.
The 5-year-old professional association provides national advocacy and support for development of new professional science master’s degree programs as well as faculty professional development opportunities. It represents more than 125 universities across the country with nearly 300 PSM degree programs.
The PSM degree is an innovative graduate degree designed to prepare students for science careers in business, government or non-profit organizations. It combines study in science or mathematics with coursework in business, management, policy, law or other fields.
SUNY Oswego has two professional science master’s degrees, one in human-computer interaction and one in chemistry, with more in development.
