Biotechnology is applied molecular and cellular biology, and students will master a broad range of lab skills applicable to biology and biotechnology, including applied research skills at an advanced level that will prepare them for a career or graduate studies in molecular biology, biotechnology, & bioscience fields like medicine. This program requires more Chemistry and Math than the B.S. Biology and B.A. Biology programs. Beyond the first year, the required biology courses are all molecular and cellular biology focused. Students earn a Minor in Chemistry with this degree, and have a required research internship experience. Future accreditation by the American Society for Biochemistry & Molecular Biology is being pursued for this program.
