Admissions: Programs of Study


The M.S. Biotechnology program will prepare you for careers in broad fields related to biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, health care, as well as many others. This professional science master’s (PSM) program is an interdisciplinary graduate degree that blends modern science education with communication skills, management and business understanding, and analytical reasoning. The present market for scientists with a MS Biotechnology degree is strong, due to the fact that master’s level biotech and pharmaceuticals workers can handle many of the needs for a given company, such as laboratory discovery research in addition to roles in management. A Professional Science Master’s -based M.S. Biotechnology degree is ideal for mid- and upper-level technical/lab research and business-management/research positions in private, public and government sectors, as well for academic instructor positions in academia. If you are considering a doctoral degree as part of your future goals, this degree is also more attractive to medical, veterinary and dental schools. Finally, the M.S. Biotechnology degree will give you graduate training without investing the time required for a Ph.D.
