Biotechnology master's degrees from Johns Hopkins University

Johns Hopkins University offers biotechnology master's degrees tailored to the needs of working adults, whether you choose to take classes onsite in the evening or on Saturday, or pursue your degree fully online.

Starting the Spring 2012, you can apply for our newly created Master's in Biotechnology Enterprise and Entrepreneurship degree designed to meet the growing need in the industry of combining the best of science and enterprise.

Uniquely situated in a leading biotechnlogy cluster and near key goverment research and regulatory agencies, the programs leverage expert faculty from Johns Hopkins, government and private industry.

Johns Hopkins' Advanced Biotechnology Studies (ABS) Program is rooted in the multidisciplinary skills of basic research, drug discovery technologies, bioinformatics, regulatory affairs, and product commercialization that the industry demands. The program offers four master's degrees, graduate fellowships, and certificates.

Graduate Degree Programs
  • Master of Science in Biotechnology
  • Master of Science in Bioinformatics
  • Master of Science in Bioscience Regulatory Affairs
  • Master of Science in Biotechnology/Master of Business Administration joint degree
Graduate Fellowships
  • National Cancer Institute Molecular Targets and Drug Discovery Fellowship
  • United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases Biodefense Fellowship
  • Noblis, Inc. Bioinformatics Fellowship
  • Certificate in Biotechnology Enterprise
  • Certificate in Biotechnology Education in partnership with the JHU School of Education
  • Certificate in National Security Studies/MS in Biotechnology with a concentration in Biodefense


The ABS Program offers flexible courses tailored to the needs of working adults. Three of the program's graduate degrees can be completed online (although the concentrations in Molecular Targets & Drug Discovery Technologies and Biodefense require onsite coursework). Students can also take courses onsite at our Montgomery County, MD campus or at our Baltimore, MD campus. Select courses are also offered at the Higher Education Conference Center (HECC) in Aberdeen, MD. Onsite courses are held in the evening and on Saturdays to accommodate the working professional.


Many of our students are working in the biotechnology industry and are looking to advance their careers. Some are looking to fulfill academic requirements for pursuing medical school and degrees in public health. Others are looking to master the business of biotechnology as they consider a career transition from the lab. Still others have sharpened their acumen for intellectual property rights, patent law, and licensing as they plan to attend law school or join a start-up company.
