Info Sessions


The Georgetown University M.S. in Biotechnology bridges the gap between science and society. Our program focuses on developing scientific knowledge along with leadership skills, teamwork and entrepreneurship – essentials for career success. Our students learn about all aspects of biotechnology and tailor their studies through one of six program tracks.

A highlight of the master’s program is the capstone internship, which allows students to gain valuable work experience. Internship opportunities are available in all the tracks and can include research in industry, academic, and government laboratories and in business development, marketing, commercialization, finance, regulatory affairs, and technology transfer. Our program also maintains relationships with Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, giving top students the opportunity to intern at these prestigious institutions.

For practicing scientists, our flexible Graduate Certificate in Biotechnology BioBusiness provides business skills and professional opportunities, serving as a gateway to career advancement and management positions.
