WHY SHOULD I ENROLL IN ADELPHI’S Biotechnology PROGRAM?

The unique course of study provides a solid foundation in the sciences with training in business to give students the expertise to succeed in both scientific and business environments, including universities, hospitals and the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. The program includes critical training in laboratory safety, research ethics and 21st century instrumentation and techniques. The required internship offers invaluable firsthand experience.

You can receive biotechnology training by:

  • Combining training in science and business with an internship to provide the most in-depth preparation for work in the biotechnology industry
    or
  • Taking relevant courses such as Introduction to Biotechnology. This approach provides some background in biotechnology to help you decide if this field is the right fit, without the business courses and internship.
