MS in Clinical Trial Management

Introduced in 2024, the STEM-designated Clinical Trial Management program is designed to deepen a student’s understanding of the biopharmaceutical industry with application in research, specifically the conduct of clinical trials. 

The field of clinical research is focused on developing cost-effective ways to treat disease and increase quality of life through the successful development and launch of new biologics, devices, and pharmaceuticals. This program aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills required to work in various fields such as pharmacy, medicine, dentistry, healthcare, biotechnology research, and development, with a focus on clinical trial management, development, and operations.

This program will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of conducting clinical trials. It will use a multi-perspective approach to address real-world issues and problems that may arise in your future employment settings. Courses will cover topics like medical product regulation, clinical trial project management, medical product safety, ethics, and clinical trial writing and document writing.

Courses are offered on weekends to accommodate working professionals and can be attended online for those looking to complete their studies from outside of the Los Angeles area. Students set their own pace, taking as many courses as they wish to take each semester.

Courses for the degree program will begin in spring 2025. Read more in the program announcement.
