Biotechnology

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Biotechnology refers to products and technology that are based on biomolecular and cellular processes. Students studying in this field may take classes such as molecular and cell biology, genetics, immunology, anatomy and physiology, physics, chemistry, and microbiology.

Spanning 23 countries, North America is continent filled with educational opportunity. Students have the opportunity to learn multiple languages and develop an understanding of vastly different cultures.
