In order to maximize research opportunities for our high achieving students, we offer a combined Bachelor and Master of Science (B.S./M.S.) degree in Biotechnology. Students interested in this 5-year undergraduate/graduate degree program must apply for admission after their sophomore year. Admitted B.S./M.S. students will be accepted into individual research laboratories to undertake independent research projects under the supervision of faculty members, advanced graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows.
An industry prep degree
The combined BS/MS Biotechnology degree program is one of a kind! It has allowed me to complete countless hours of hands-on experience in the lab working under experts in their field and alongside driven students. The course curriculum prepares students for applications in many topics and exposes us to a wide range of career opportunities. This program truly prepares students for a successful life in the workforce. I am so glad I landed in this program and would recommend anyone interested in life sciences to look into it for themselves! —Elizabeth Cooper
The classes have equipped me to handle real world assignments
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in the combined B.S./M.S. biotechnology degree. The classes have equipped me to handle real world assignments with internships at two pharmaceutical companies, conducting lab-based research, and learning how to properly synthesize academic literature. Additionally, the research I conduct for the thesis requirement of my degree gives me the opportunity to apply what I am learning in my classes to a project that can advance my field of interest. —Bobby Walker
