The Program for Applied Biotechnology Studies
A joint program between Cal Poly Pomona, CSU Los Angeles and CSU Fullerton
The Program for Applied Biotechnology Studies (PABS) Master of Biotechnology is a Professional Science Master's degree program that prepares graduates for challenging and rewarding careers in the biomedical device, biocomputing and biopharmaceutical industries.
The program is an innovative collaborative effort between three California State University Campuses: CSU Fullerton, CSU Los Angeles, and Cal Poly Pomona. This multi-campus model allows students to benefit from faculty expertise and educational resources at each of the member campuses.
Departments involved at these campuses include chemistry, biological science, mathematics, engineering, computer science and business. Each campus will offer at least one core course and one set of advanced courses.
The CSU's Professional Science Master's degree programs were featured as the most advanced in the nation at the National Governor's Association Professional Science Master's Academy held in June 2008 in Sacramento. The PABS-MBt has been recognized as a Professional Science Master's program in all of its six discipline areas by the Council of Graduate Schools.
The application period for the PABS Mbt program is now open, and will close on to April 8, 2013.
Please note: PABS program admissions for Fall 2013 are contingent on program continuation approval from the PABS Consortium Campus administrations.
