Students in the Biotechnology program at Alma College study contemporary “hot topics” using modern techniques and lab instrumentation. They also have the opportunity to gain real-world experience by interacting with professionals in the industry.
In addition to completing an intensive summer research experience, students participate in a journal club that documents their critical analysis of current research. This is one of the many unique features of the biotechnology program, which integrates coursework from the humanities and social sciences.
The program prepares students with hands-on skills for graduate studies in biomedical science as well as for work in research, health, pharmaceutical, environmental science and agricultural biotechnology settings. Alma has a history of successfully placing its graduates in biotechnology positions.
