Programs of Study

As a leader in biological research and the global biotechnology industry, the Johns Hopkins University Advanced Biotechnology Studies graduate program delivers a rigorous and practical course of study tailored to working professionals. One of the largest programs of its kind and ideally situated, the program offers the unique combined strengths of faculty members and experts from Hopkins, federal research and regulatory governmental agencies, and leading biotechnology companies.

Courses are offered both on-site and online. On-site courses are conveniently offered during evenings and weekends. Three of the four master's degrees may be complete fully online. The master's degrees offered through this program provide a solid foundation in the life sciences—the basis for the biotechnology field—and integrate the ideas, tools, and principles of business required to develop marketable products for health care, for protecting the environment, and for enhancing agricultural production. The program also offers fellowships and certificate programs.

The Master of Science (M.S.) in Biotechnology program is grounded in biochemistry and cell biology. The curriculum allows graduates to participate fully in research, lead lab teams, help make development and planning decisions, and create and apply research modalities to larger schemes set in research projects. Students may choose to customize their curriculum or pursue a concentration in bioinformatics, biotechnology enterprise, regulatory affairs, molecular targets and drug discovery (developed in conjunction with the Center for Cancer Research/National Cancer Institute), or biodefense, but students do not have to choose a concentration. Students may choose to complete the M.S. in Biotechnology degree fully online.

The Master of Science in Bioinformatics program, an innovative graduate program that draws from the strengths of the Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering, fully integrates the computer science and bioscience knowledge needed to pursue a career in the dynamic new field of bioinformatics. Students may choose to complete the M.S. in Bioinformatics degree fully online.

The Master of Science in Bioscience Regulatory Affairs program addresses the current regulations and issues in the bioscience industry by using the expertise of professionals from the federal government, industry, and academia to educate graduates in federal and state regulation compliances in bioscience regulatory affairs. Students may choose to complete the M.S. in Bioscience Regulatory Affairs degree fully online.

The M.S. in Biotechnology/M.B.A. is the first dual-degree graduate program that prepares bioscience professionals for success in both the science and business of biotechnology. Drawing from the strengths of the Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the Carey School of Business, the Master of Science/Master of Business Administration is an innovative program that allows students to earn two advanced degrees in less time than it takes to earn them separately.

Johns Hopkins University has partnered with the Center for Cancer Research as the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the United States Army Medical and Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) have developed two innovative graduate fellowship programs that prepare the next generation of scientists in the emerging fields of drug discovery and biodefense. Fellows earn an M.S. in Biotechnology with a concentration in molecular targets and drug discovery or biodefense studies, participate in NCI or USAMRIID laboratories, and receive paid tuition for up to two years and an annual stipend.

Students who want a good understanding of the business aspects of biotechnology to advance in this rapidly changing field but are well versed in the scientific aspects can apply to the Certificate Program in Biotechnology Enterprise, which consists of six courses.
