Requirements for the M.S. in Biotechnology
Students must have successfully completed a B.S. or B.A. in the natural or health sciences and must meet the entrance requirements of the Bayer School of Natural and Environmental Sciences.
Students entering the program must take the required courses in biology or chemistry, depending on their specialization, and two additional courses in biotechnology. The remainder of the 30 credits required for graduation will be filled in the M.S. in Biotechnology with electives from the Bayer School graduate program and the Donahue Graduate School of Business. Courses will be selected to provide students with a customized program directed at their specialty and specific industry requirements.
The M.S. in Biotechnology is designed to be completed in two years, with a minimum of 6 credit hours during the fall and spring semesters. The remaining coursework is completed during the summer term between years one and two. The courses are offered in the evening for the convenience of working students.
