Western University - Faculty of Science, Professional Masters Programs

The use of the word “professional” to describe master’s degrees is certainly not new. In fact, degrees leading to careers in industry and government have been a feature of North American graduate education for decades. Western Science is home to four professional programs, each leveraging technical skills developed during undergraduate science degrees and expanding portfolios to include management, communications and leadership skills valued across the private and public sectors. Each professional program in the Faculty of Science offers a work term component.
