A career in regulatory affairs can take many paths - e.g., clinical trials, drug development, food safety, medical device advancement, pharmaceutical research, or chemistry manufacturing and controls. Just knowing the fundamentals of regulatory affairs is not enough to advance your career or secure a job in this industry. To become a regulatory affairs professional, training and education are essential.
San Diego State University will offer both an Advanced Certificate in Regulatory Affairs and online Master of Science in Regulatory Affairs degree during the fall semester.
Each program focuses on good manufacturing processes, laws, and regulations mandated by major governmental regulatory agencies, specifically the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Medicines Agency (EMA). Topics related to discovery, development, testing, manufacturing, commercial distribution, and post-marketing surveillance are at the core of this program.
SDSU's Regulatory Affairs program provides students with detailed knowledge and understanding of current regulations and their practical application to the development and commercialization of pharmaceutical, biologic, veterinarian, and medical device products.
In order to earn an advanced certificate or master’s degree, you must apply and be admitted to SDSU. You may not take more than three units prior to being officially admitted into the advanced certificate, and no more than 12 units prior to the master’s degree program if you wish to earn an official SDSU advanced certificate or degree.
