The Johns Hopkins University MS in Regulatory Science program provides students pursuing a career in regulatory science with a specialized course of study emphasizing advanced topics in the regulatory approval processes for global and domestic biotech products. Students may specialize in an aspect of the regulatory science of their choice through three elective courses, including a wide variety of advanced regulatory courses. By providing students with a strong foundation in regulatory science and a hands-on introduction to current good manufacturing, laboratory and clinical practices, as well as product development, the program offers graduates unique instruction for the specialized jobs in regulatory science in federal, academic and industry work settings.
Our curriculum offers practical hands-on, real-life regulatory science experience through case-study assignments and a unique Practicum course at the end of the program. Students are expected to research, evaluate and present scientifically and legally-justifiable positions on case studies from different perspectives of advanced regulatory topics.
Students must complete all academic work in a master’s degree or certificate program within five years.
The five-year span is calculated from the start of the first course that counts toward the degree (including time spent on continuous enrollment). Continuous enrollment does not stop or extend the time limitation requirement. This time limit includes any courses taken at another Johns Hopkins school/division that have been approved to count toward the degree or certificate. If necessary, students may request from their program committee an extension of time to complete their program beyond the five-year limitation.
If an extension is granted, it will be communicated in a letter, and the five-year limit increased by the time included in the extension. An extension may be granted for a semester up to a full year, and in rare circumstances for two years.
