Professional Science Master’s Program in Biotechnology

Brandeis has initiated a new masters program, the Professional Science Masters in Biotechnology, which couples training in science, business and a workforce internship.  Brandeis students have the option of applying to the degree program in their junior year – they would begin program courses in their senior year and would receive the MS in Biotechnology degree after one additional year of graduate work (the “5-year option”).  Seniors can apply to enter the two-year MS degree program.  Applications will be considered beginning MARCH 15, with students admitted on a rolling basis.

Profs. Neil Simister and Susan Lovett will hold an informational meeting about the program on Thursday Feb. 4 at 6:30 PM in the Rosenstiel building, room 118.

Key elements of the program include:

  • Hands-on laboratory experience with state-of-the-art bioscience technologies
  • Integrated coursework in molecular and cell biology, with opportunities to pursue individual interests in courses taught by world-class faculty in biology and biochemistry
  • Courses that aid understanding of the biosciences industry, including business, project management, regulatory affairs and ethics
  • Development of professional skills through writing, oral presentations, research practice, data analysis and team projects
  • A summer workforce or research internship
  • Individual advising and mentorship at each stage
