Professional Science Master's Option
There are two options for completing a degree within the CWSP program: the Thesis Option, and the Professional Science Master's (PSM) Option. The thesis option culminates in a thesis dissertation, while the PSM option culminates in a professional internship with a local organization. The two options share a common base of coursework, with the PSM Option involving one more elective course than the thesis option.
The PSM Option is a new option within the CWSP MS program at CSUMB. It satisfies a demand for highly skilled professionals within technology-based companies, governmental agencies, and non-profit organizations. Advanced technology training is complemented by advanced science and policy training in pertinent fields. Skills learned in the classroom are matured by students through professional internships. The PSM option gives students unique technical skill sets that will distinguish them as they enter the workforce.
