This program provides training and certification of the technical skills for students studying Biology, Marine Biology, Environmental Science and Chemistry. The mastery of these skills will make graduates more competitive for graduate programs and jobs in the biomedical research, biotech and pharmaceutical industries. Our students will receive interdisciplinary training and will examine the genetic materials that control the structure and behaviors of living organisms. Biotechnology is revolutionizing industry, medicine, agriculture and aquaculture. Students who simultaneously complete this program of study along with their undergraduate major, will graduate with a bachelor's degree as well as a certificate in Biotechnology.
Biology, Environmental Sciences, Marine Biology or Chemistry Majors will be eligible for a Certificate in Biotechnology by having a 3.0 GPA, filing an application, completing required courses, and completing an internship/research project. Internships can be conducted in research laboratories (at academic institutions) Biotechnology companies in New England, other areas in the U.S. and abroad. For successful completion of the Certificate in Biotechnology students will be expected to maintain a 3.0 GPA and take a comprehensive knowledge and laboratory evaluation test. The certificate will be conferred only in conjunction with the awarding of a bachelors degree from Roger Williams University.
