What to Expect
In the Regulatory Sciences Certificate courses, you will gain insight into the complexities of the laws, regulations, policies, risk assessments, risk-benefit analyses and risk management processes. You will obtain a working knowledge of regulatory sciences that can foster leadership in regulatory sciences for industry, government and academia. You will graduate from the program with a more competitive background for regulatory science-based careers.
We offer two courses per semester. If you take both each semester, you can complete the certificate in as little as one year. If you choose to take one course each semester, you will complete the program in two years.
