Graduate Programs (Majors, Minors, and Certificates)

Applied Biotechnology (PSM, minor)

In its relatively short history, molecular biology has had a profound influence on medicine, environmental science, and other disciplines, and has spawned the development of a diverse biotechnology industry. Oregon State University's Professional Science Master's Degree Program in Applied Biotechnology is designed to provide students with specialized training that will enable them to be productive participants in the biotechnology sector. This program was founded on the core curriculum of the Molecular and Cell Biology program, which offers rigorous training in the fundamental theory and practice of molecular biology. The Applied Biotechnology Professional Science Master's degree builds on this fundamental curriculum, adding training in areas where the emphasis in industrial laboratories differs from training needed to pursue a career in basic research.
