Master’s Program Curriculum


A minimum of 11.0 credit units (CUs) are required to obtain the Masters of Biotechnology degree. There are 6 core CUs that are required for all Biotechnology students. The remaining 5 CUs are made up of the track electives. As of 2020, 7 of the 11 required CUs must be taken within the Schools of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS). Though they will be assigned an advisor, students in the program are ultimately responsible for making sure they meet the Masters of Biotechnology degree’s requirements.
