MS in Biotechnology: 1- and 2-Year Programs!

The Center for Biotechnology and Genomics offers one-year and two-year multidisciplinary degree Master’s programs in Biotechnology. Students may customize their coursework with the freedom to choose electives across TTU and TTUHSC to meet their career aspirations.

Gap year students interested in pursuing professional degrees in medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, veterinary, law, communication, etc. can take advantage of the one-year, non-research-based degree program.

Students interested in pursuing a research-based career in biotechnology can opt for the two-year research-based degree option in either the Bioinformatics or the Life Sciences concentration. Following one year of core courses and electives, the student will pursue a research internship or thesis in academia, government, or for-profit biotechnology entities.
