We expect that you will continue to be paid on your spring semester contract while you work on non-laboratory activities such as literature reviews, modeling, experimental plans, data analysis, etc. Guidance from several federal agencies suggests that RAs can continue to be paid even if their lab work has been reduced by not having access to facilities during campus closures.
Hourly students may continue to be paid, at the discretion of the PI. Many hourly students may not be able to contribute easily through remote methods. Please talk with your PI to discuss your work arrangements.
A Professional Science Master's (PSM) is an innovative graduate degree, typically two years academic training in an emerging or interdisciplinary area of science, mathematics or technology. The PSM also contains a professional component, internship and "cross-training" in business, management and communications. All are developed in concert with industry and are designed to dovetail into professional career opportunities.
Submit an Application for Graduate Admission to the Graduate Admissions office, along with all of the required documentation such as transcripts, recommendation letters and GRE scores. See Graduate Admissions for more information on applying.
