Bioinformatics, Master of (M.Bin.)
The Master of Bioinformatics (M.Bin) represents a new type of master’s degree, the professional science master’s, which is increasingly popular with students and industry employers. The M.Bin. is designed primarily for the entrepreneurial student seeking an accelerated master’s program that blends comprehensive course work, significant but reduced research experience and a professional externship. The centerpiece of the M.Bin. option is the opportunity to extern for a full summer at an academic, government or industry location. While this degree prepares students for a variety of careers in the life sciences, it should be particularly attractive to students interested in entry-level positions in industry.
