The Council on Graduate Schools (CGS) has recently released a study on the placement and success rates of a new group of professional programs aimed at helping science and engineering undergrads use their technical skills in new ways. These programs, termed Professional Science Masters programs (PSMs), are career- and skills-focused programs, that provide their enrollees with practical training in how to use their technical knowledge in the workplace. The MS in Patent Law is a program of this type, and has seen our graduates have similar success as that detailed in the article. Read more about PSMs in the CGS report.
