Our customizable Master of Science in Professional Studies program is designed for students who wish to combine their interests in two or three areas of study. Our academic advisors play a key role in designing your program and keeping you on track toward its completion.
The customizable MS program allows you to select professional concentrations from a broad range of RIT programs and departments. For example, you might design an MS program that combines concentrations in communication, graphic arts publishing, and general business. Or, you might design an MS program with concentrations in imaging science, color science, and software development. Each program can be as unique as the individual pursuing it. RIT Advanced Certificates can also be used towards the Professional Studies MS degree.
Students completing this degree program achieve knowledge and skills in professional communications, critical thinking, collaboration, problem solving, and ethical reasoning.
