The Master of Science in Patent Law from University of Minnesota combines traditional study of the complexity of patent law with project-based learning about business strategies and extensive practical training. By the time you graduate, you will understand the science behind patents, the law that secures them, and the techniques to manage innovation and maximize the value of resulting patents.
Graduates have gone on to a wide array of careers in patent-intensive industries ranging from medical technology to computer software. Many of our graduates take and pass the Patent Bar, going on to become patent agents (i.e., individuals who can work on, file, and initiate patent applications for clients). Patent agents are currently in high demand and the need continues to grow.
