To prepare you to effectively manage regulatory activities, Northeastern University’s College of Professional Studies offers the Master of Science in Regulatory Affairs. This unique graduate degree is designed to deepen your understanding of the global compliance requirements for the development, marketing approval, and utilization of highly regulated products, including food, drugs, biologics, and medical devices.
