Introduction

Please click here  to see Integrative Biology department information.

Biotechnology is a rapidly growing field in Colorado and nationally that encompasses many disciplines. Agriculture, biofuels, biomedical biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, microbiology, and medical device development are all well-represented areas of biotechnology in Colorado. The Department of Integrative Biology offers a Certificate program in Biotechnology that allows students to acquire foundational knowledge and specialized skills relevant to these research areas. The certificate is designed to provide a strong background in biochemistry and molecular biology, with an emphasis on applied training via lab work and research experiences. Upon completion of the requirements, students obtain recognition in the form of a Certificate and official designation on their transcript.

These degree requirements are subject to periodic revision by the academic department, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences reserves the right to make exceptions and substitutions as judged necessary in individual cases. Therefore, the College strongly urges students to consult regularly with their major advisor and CLAS advisor to confirm the best plans of study before finalizing them.
