Regulatory Science Introduction

SDSU Center for Regulatory Science

Regulatory science professionals are in demand. A career in regulatory affairs can take many paths, e.g., clinical trials, drug development, food safety, medical device advancement, pharmaceutical research, or chemistry manufacturing and controls. Just knowing the fundamentals of regulatory affairs is not enough to advance your career or secure a job in this industry. To become a regulatory affairs professional, training and education are essential.

Students in our WASC-accredited fully online Masters Degree and Certificate Programs build a foundation of knowledge focused on current laws, regulations, and good manufacturing processes mandated by major governmental regulatory agencies, specifically the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Medicines Agency (EMA). Topics related to the discovery, development, testing, manufacture, commercialization, and post-marketing surveillance of pharmaceutical, biologic, and medical device products are at the core of these programs.

All of the Regulatory Science courses are available online as nine-week special sessions and designed to afford students a high degree of flexibility in integrating their studies with their professional responsibilities and other commitments. For personal advising, contact Dr. Lorah Bodie at lbodie@sdsu.edu.
