The 30-credit Master of Science in Biotechnology is designed to supplement advanced graduate training in the natural sciences, while enabling students to consider other career options for their scientific knowledge through coursework in business, ethics, and leadership. Duquesne biotechnology students learn not just science, but also how to participate and lead technical development teams and how to use their background in the diverse career opportunities found within biomedicine.
Two track options: biotechnology/pre-medical and health or the second track which allows students to take a greater number of traditional course offerings in biology and biochemistry and can provide a foundation for students interested in continuing their academic training beyond the M.S.
