BA/MS or BS/MS in Biotechnology – Open for Applications

Brandeis is accepting applications for the BA/MS and BS/MS programs in Biotechnology. The combined degrees allow Brandeis students to take the first year of the two-year Biotechnology program as seniors, and complete the MS with a summer internship and one year of graduate study after their BA or BS. Our first class of graduated in May 2012, and are now pursuing a variety of exciting jobs in the industry.

Brandeis students may earn their bachelor’s degree in any major, but must have completed introductory courses in biology and laboratory (BIOL 22a and b, BIOL 18a and b) and chemistry and laboratory (CHEM 11a and b or CHEM 15a and b, and CHEM 18a and b or CHEM 19a and b).  Applicants must describe how their bachelor’s degree requirements can be met in the first year of the program.  GREs are not required for admission into the five-year program.

Students should apply to the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences in their junior years. There is no deadline but we advise interested students to apply by March 15. We will admit students on a rolling basis until the class for fall 2014 is filled.

If you have questions, please contact program directors Dr. Neil Simister (simister at brandeis . edu) and Dr. Susan Lovett (lovett at brandeis . edu).
