Regulatory Affairs and Services (M.S.)



Complete admission and program requirements are found in the University Catalog.


The RAS full-time program is a two-year, 36-credit program with an industry internship.

Students take a minimum of 8 credits per semester in the fall and spring. This meets the full-time enrollment requirement for international students.  

It is designed to meet the needs of international students and others who can register for a full time program and participate in an industry internship. The program is located in the Twin Cities, a leading economic area with high employment specialization and share of the medical device industry.

The industry internship requires 2 credits in the fall and spring semesters of the second year. Students will spend about 20 hours per week working on a variety of regulatory activities in the medical device industry.

The internship combines the application of knowledge students have gained from coursework with mentoring by company regulatory professionals.
