The Biomedical Track of the Professional Master's degree in Biotechnology
Hello and welcome to the graduate program in Biotechnology at Texas Tech University
Health Sciences Center. We are proud to offer this unique program, which is designed
to provide a high quality education in the exciting and growing field of Biotechnology.
This field of study has already produced tests and therapies that have saved or improved
the lives of countless people. Future discoveries and developments in biotechnology
will profoundly affect every branch of medicine, and there is almost no limit to what
can be accomplished by talented and dedicated biomedical scientists. Do you have what
it takes to be a part of it?
If you're interested in biotechnology as applied to the field of human medicine, our
Biomedical Track may be just what you're looking for. If you are interested in agricultural or another
non-medical branch of Biotechnology, visit the site for the Science/Agriculture Track at TTU. These two tracks to the M.S. in Biotechnology are both 21 month curricula that include
two semesters of coursework and a year of full time research in a University or biotechnology
industry lab. It is typically a non-thesis degree with an optional thesis at the end
of the second year by arrangement with the advisor. Collectively, the joint program
comprises the only biotechnology degree in the nation that combines the expertise
of faculty from both a medical school and a large research university, and that provides
a breadth of educational opportunity ranging from animal and plant biotechnology in
agriculture to cutting-edge concepts and applications in biomedicine.
There is no shortcut to a quality education in biotechnology and biomedical sciences.
Our faculty are active investigators conducting internationally recognized research in their
respective fields. Consequently, graduates from this program move on to the next phases
in their careers with the confidence that can only come from the experience of working
full time in a state-of-the-art biomedical research laboratory.
