Biotechnology Program Description

Biotechnology is an applied science at the forefront of biomedical, genomic and proteomic research. Graduates of this program are distinguished by their training not only in scientific techniques in a broad range of biological and chemical fields, but also in the business aspects associated with taking a product from development in the research laboratory to its production for diagnostic or treatment purposes. Independent research is integrated into coursework at all levels, and critical thinking and teamwork skills are emphasized.

Extensive opportunities exist for graduates of this program in the Baltimore-Washington corridor, which is one of five major areas of concentration for biotechnology in the nation, as well as across the country. The bachelor of science degree in biotechnology prepares a graduate to become a member of a team working in biomedical, forensic or industrial research laboratories, and pharmaceutical and biological production facilities. Our graduates are also well prepared for admission to graduate school in biology or related fields, and admission to medical, dental, veterinary, physical therapy or other health profession schools.
