Palm Beach State College offers two degree programs in biotechnology. Students may choose to enroll in the Associate in Science (AS) degree, which prepares students for entry into the biotechnology workforce, academic research, and related industries; or a dual Associate in Arts (AA)/(AS) degree option, designed for pre-med and other students planning to transfer to a four-year university. Both the 61-credit AS and dual AA/AS programs require students to complete a 4-month Biotech internship outside of the College that provides training in real-world academic or industry research.
Our award winning program is taught by PhD level scientific faculty and researchers committed to providing challenging courses to meet the needs of the growing biotech industry.
Certificate Programs in Biotechnology
In addition to the AS degree, we offer a 19-credit College Credit Certificate (CCC) for students with a life science bachelor's degree who want to gain the lab skills and internship experience that employers expect.
We also offer a 30-credit Certificate for undergrads looking to stand out from the competition and add just a few Biotech courses to their AA degree plan. These certificates can boost a resume, job application, and applications to graduate or medical school.
Palm Beach State's biotech business partnership, consisting of over 25 different biotech firms, allows our students unique internship opportunities which develop the skills and experience required for a successful career in the biotechnology and biomedical fields.
