CUR Webinar: Undergraduate Research as a Pipeline to Professional Science Master's Programs: Wednesday, October 9, 2013, 3:00 - 4:00pm
Please join Elizabeth Ambos (Executive Officer), Joaquin Carbonara (SUNY Buffalo State) and Marilyn Wells (Minnesota State University at Mankato) as they discuss Professional Science Master’s Programs and undergraduate research
In parallel with the rapid expansion of undergraduate research, and its incorporation into many undergraduate majors and curricula, a new type of graduate degree, the Professional Science Master’s (PSM), has come into prominence in the last decade. Combining coursework in science and business, internship in a business or public sector enterprise, and a final project incorporating research elements, the PSM is an excellent graduate option for many undergraduate researchers to consider. In the October 2013 webinar, CUR partners with the leading organizational voice for the PSM, the National Professional Science Master’s Association (http://www.npsma.org) , to share early developments and reveal current and exciting trends in the PSM community, and how undergraduate research experiences can be an excellent springboard to PSM programs, and careers in business and industry.
Presenters: Elizabeth Ambos, Executive Officer, Council on Undergraduate Research; Joaquin Carbonara, Professor of Mathematics at SUNY Buffalo State, Marilyn Wells, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, Minnesota State University at Mankato. Both Dr. Carbonara and Dr. Wells are Board Members of the National Professional Science Master’s Association.
