Why get a professional Master’s of Science in Bioinformatics?
Our professional M.S. in Bioinformatics equips you with the knowledge, skills, abilities, and industry contacts required to take your chosen career in data-rich fields including agriculture and the environment, biotechnology, pharmaceutical, or biomanufacturing industries to the next level. Unlike a thesis-based M.S. program, students in the Bioinformatics Program take core and elective courses in genetics and genomics of immediate relevance to working professionals. Our mission is to efficiently provide our students the specialized knowledge and skills needed to successfully enter or advance their careers in a range of bioscience industries. This M.S. program concludes with a training experience in a research lab or industrial setting that will help launch you onto the next stage of your career journey in the biotechnology and associated industries.
