Biotechnology Degrees and Certificates

Community colleges offer a variety of degrees and certificates that prepare students for work in biotechnology companies and research institutions. Some of these programs are designed for recent high school graduates, others require a Bachelor's degree.

Associates Degrees:  Community and technical colleges offer two general kinds of degrees.  

Transfer degrees are designed for students who wish to transfer to a four-year college or University.  These kinds of degrees include AA (Associate of Arts) and AS (Associate of Science) degrees.  Most of these degrees can be completed in two years.

Applied degrees are designed for students who wish to enter the workforce immediately after graduation.  Examples of these degrees are AAS (Applied Associate of Science), and other types of Applied Associates degrees.

Certificates:  Community and technical colleges offer a much wider variety of certificates.  Most certificate programs are designed to meet the needs of local industry and can be completed in a year or less.
