Georgetown University’s unique Masters in Biotechnology Program integrates science and biotechnology-based business with a 30-credit degree requirement. It can be completed in just TWO semesters, allowing both flexibility for self-discovery and career orientation.

The MS in Biotechnology program offers track options in BioBusiness, BioScience, Drug Design and Discovery, Entrepreneurship NEW and Industrial Sciences as well as flexibility for an Individualized Track.

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.
