The MS in Chemistry/Biotechnology is designed for students seeking to build on a foundation of chemistry and/or biochemistry into the field of biotechnology.
As a student in the MS in Chemistry/Biotechnology program, you'll gain valuable professional skills training. You will receive individual attention and be mentored by faculty at the top of their fields, and you will join a thriving community of researchers. You will learn how to find, understand, and critically evaluate primary literature, and you will learn how to write, display, and communicate chemical science information for both nonscientific and expert audiences. You'll also learn about other important aspects of research including matters of safety, ethics, integrity, diversity, and inclusion.
Graduates of the Chemistry/Biotechnology master's program have gone on to range of careers spanning chemistry, biotechnology, and business including research, health careers, and science-related business, entrepreneurship, and project management positions.
