Full list of ELIGIBILITY & APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS
The biotechnology industry is very interdisciplinary, so our program is as well. While successful completion of a bachelor's degree is required, it does not have to be in a particular discipline. It can be very helpful to have had a previous course in molecular biology and a year of college level calculus. For students who would like to 'brush up' or gain exposure to relavent subject matter prior to application or enrollment in the program, here is a list of suitable texts.
