Besides our gorgeous campus, family atmosphere and more-than-qualified faculty, we’re the only Seventh-day Adventist university in America offering a biotechnology degree.
Love the sciences, but don’t want to be a doctor? Our biotechnology program was made for you! With a biotech degree, you have options ranging from technician to business development manager.
Forty-nine percent of biotech jobs only require a bachelor's degree. That means when you leave Andrews’s biotech program you will be directly employable straight out of college!
Our skills-based program offers hands-on learning intended to develop you into not only an exemplary professional, but also an ethical scientist firmly grounded in faith.
Our program emphasizes practical, cutting-edge, experiences through on-campus research or off-campus internships in the biotech sector.
Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2012–2013
Our classroom and research-based program allows you to develop your biotechnology skills for practical realization in the work system. That's why we require a significant research internship on- or off-campus the summer after your junior year. Our faculty and courses are wide-ranging—as a biotech major, you'll have the opportunity to study and learn from faculty in multiple fields, including computer science, agriculture and engineering.
