GRADUATE PROGRAM IN BIOTECHNOLOGY

West Virginia State University

The  Department of Biology has been designated by West Virginia State University as a "Peak of Excellence" and as a "Program of Excellence" by the West Virginia State University System Board of Directors. The Department offers the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in biology in four options. Twelve faculty populate the department, and there are over 250 majors.  We are into our second year of offering graduate program in Biotechnology.  We have accepted seven students into the program for Fall, 2004, and anticipate a dozen students being enrolled in the program this Fall.

The Master's Degree in Biotechnology at WVSU is a unique graduate program in the life sciences that will emphasize skills that a 21st century biologist will need.   Students will learn state of the art biotechnology and use acquired techniques to conduct research that addresses environmental, agricultural and biomedical problems.   The goal of the Master's Degree Program in Biotechnology is to provide instruction in the broad field of biotechnology as well as specialized training in the current concepts and technological advances of a sub-discipline of biotechnology.   This program will prepare students for diverse careers in the Biotechnology, Pharmaceutical, and Environmental Sciences, and Health Care industries as well as Education (MA).

Presently, applications are being accepted.   Potential students can find out more about the program using the following contact information:
