Biotechnology is an interdisciplinary program that offers students an opportunity to take courses in biology, environmental sciences, chemistry, engineering, management, public policy and law that will be important for addressing biotechnology-related issues. This program will help students prepare for jobs in areas such as the biotechnology industry, health professions, pharmaceutical and agricultural industry, environmental conservation and research in academia. The program requires many of the same basic courses as the B.S. degree in Biology, with additional courses in engineering, management and public policy. A variety of elective courses in biology, engineering, law, management and public policy can be used to fulfill the major requirements as well. A senior year capstone class (Biotechnology Seminar) and valuable industry internships and research opportunities are also part of this major.
