Why Get an M.S. in Biotechnology Degree?

The average salary of a Maryland bioscience employee is approximately $80,000. (Maryland Biotechnology Center, 2009)

The Milken Institute projects that biotechnology employment will grow by 1.6% annually through 2014, with many subsectors projected to experience even faster rates of growth. (Angelou Economics: Global Economic Development)

Biotechnology offers opportunities in five major subsectors:

Drugs and pharmaceuticals: Traditionally, chemistry has been the means by which new medicines have been isolated or synthesized. The rise of biotechnology, however, now promises pharmaceuticals that are created through biological processes found in living organisms. Future advances in medicine are relying more and more on the use of biotechnology and, as a result, the role of biotechnology in healthcare is rapidly expanding.... [-]
