Biotechnology
Bachelor of Science

Directed Electives - Biotechnology

A minimum of 9 credits of directed elective courses required. New biotechnology related courses not currently on the list may also fulfill this requirement with permission of your advisor.

Although any combination of courses below may satisfy the minimum 9 credits required, the following list has been categorized into 3 of the most common subject areas of interest to BTC students. These groupings of elective courses are guidelines. Probably no two students in the biotechnology program have exactly the same career goals or interests. Consult your advisor if your subject interests vary.
