Welcome to the Masters in Biotechnology Program

Georgetown University’s unique master's program located in Washington, DC, integrates science and biotechnology-based business.  Our 30-credit degree requirement can be completed in two semesters and allows flexibility for self-discovery and career orientation.  For non-visa students, the program has a part-time option to complete all degree requirements in six academic semesters. Admission for the fall or spring semester is available.

The MS in Biotechnology program offers Track options in BioBusiness, BioScience, Drug Design and Discovery, and Industrial Sciences as well as flexibility for an Individualized Track.  We focus on developing leadership skills, teamwork and entrepreneurship that are essential for career success.

A highlight of the program is the capstone internship, which allows students to gain desired work experience.  Internship opportunities are available in all the Tracks that include research in industry, academic and government laboratories and in business development, marketing, commercialization, finance, regulatory affairs, and technology transfer.
