Panel discussion on BA/MS or BS/MS degrees in Biotechnology

Did you know that Brandeis offers BA/MS and BS/MS programs in Biotechnology? There will be a presentation on these programs on Thursday, 31 January, 7-8 PM in the Shapiro Science Center atrium.  Refreshments will be provided.  Panelists will be:

  • Michael Chi ’13, senior and first year BS/MS student,
  • Jaclyn Weinstein ’12, second year BS/MS student,
  • Joseph Harari ’11, MS ’12, Scientific Associate II at Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research.

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 additional year of graduate study after their BA or BS.  For information, please see:

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.

To participate, students should apply to the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences in their junior years.  There is no deadline but application by March 1 is advised.  Rolling admission for fall 2013 begins March 15.

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