Program Overview

Biotechnology has developed around the study of living things at the molecular level. The chemistry of genetics has found applications in medicine and industry. Techniques of molecular genetics have allowed dramatic advances in our understanding of developmental biology, physiology, immunology, and evolution. The bachelor’s degree in biotechnology and molecular biology provides you a balanced foundation in biology, plus an introduction to the theory and methods of biotechnology and molecular biology.

As a biotechnology major, dedicated faculty will encourage you to engage in internships at biotechnology laboratories in the Worcester area, host to a rapidly growing biomedical industry. When you graduate, you’ll be prepared to pursue graduate study in the biological sciences or in the health sciences. The major is also excellent preparation for a teaching career or employment in a biotechnology-based field.

Students pursuing a biotechnology and molecular biology degree acquire a balanced foundation in biology, plus an introduction to the theory and methods of biotechnology and molecular biology.
