Living and learning are intimately intertwined at USD. Masters of Science students are encouraged to take advantage of the university's vast resources as well as those in the local community. San Diego is alive with cultural events, sports, art and miles of white sand beaches. The business, bio-tech and marine science communities are among the most productive and respected in the country, which provide our MS students with the resources they need to succeed inside and outside of the classroom.
