Biotechnology

Bachelor of Science in Biology

The Biotechnology program offers excellent exposure to the application of the principles of cell and molecular science and to the production of industrially useful or biologically important products. Because of dramatic recent advances within the field of biotechnology and their potential impact on society, the 21st century may indeed be remembered as the Age of Biotechnology.

To prepare students to successfully navigate within this exciting arena, the curriculum has been designed to provide students with a rigorous and interdisciplinary scientific foundation in the central disciplines upon which biotechnology is based, such as cell biology, genetics, molecular biology, chemistry, forensic science, and microbiology.

Bay Path Science Student Places 8th in Video Competition!

The Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE) held a contest called "Film your research". This contest had the goal to get scientists connected with the concept of “visual science” by making a 2-minute video featuring a researcher performing a scientific experiment/technique in the laboratory or in the field. Nicole Gousy, a Bay Path science student, placed 8th out of 200 submissions from graduate students, post-docs, and research scientists. Check out her video below! Nicole also won a poster award for her work at the Active Site 2017 conference at Northeastern University. She was awarded a $500 travel award to attend the American Society for Molecular Biology and Biochemistry Annual Meeting in San Diego!
