Program Description

The Master of Science in Biology is designed to provide students with advanced knowledge of both plant and animal biology and microbiology. The program requires a minimum of 30 credits of graduate work. These must include at least one 3-credit course in four of the following five areas: cell biology/biochemistry, molecular biology, computational biology, ecology/evolution, and plant biology.

To fulfill the written thesis requirement, students may conduct laboratory, field work, or bibliographic research. Students selecting the experimentally-based research thesis option must complete a minimum of 24 credits of course work and 6 credits of research with a graduate faculty member of the department. Students choosing the bibliographic-based research thesis option are required to take 27 credits of course work and 3 credits of independent study with a graduate faculty member of the department. For both experimentally-based and bibliographic-based research thesis options, the thesis will be defended publicly followed by a question-and-answer session with the thesis committee. The thesis committee must be approved by the Graduate Program Director and consist of the primary advisor and at least one other reader who is a member of the graduate faculty.

Federal

Federation is a formal agreement between Rutgers University-Newark and NJIT to coordinate many activities. The goal is to increase the quality of teaching and research by drawing from the larger, combined resource base. In particular, the curriculum and requirements of the various Graduate options are the same for both institutions, and students may take courses on both campuses to fulfill those requirements. Federation also involves the sharing of office and laboratory facilities, the coordination of research, and long-term strategic planning.

The Master of Business & Science degree at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey is a hybrid degree combining courses from an MS and MBA. Students choose an applied science concentration and that is paired with a business curriculum. The business curriculum consists of core courses in finance and accounting, marketing, communication and leadership, management, policy, intellectual policy electives, ethics and a capstone course covering entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship. The Master of Business & Science is a (Professional Science Master's) STEM degree.

The degree can be done part-time for working professionals or full-time. All required courses are in the evenings, weekends or online. Graduate Certificates in cutting-edge fields are also available.

We accept applications for all semesters. Please see more information on our admissions page.

Why pursue a Masters of Business & Science degree?

The Master of Business & Science (MBS) degree is a unique degree combining the science curriculum from a traditional science master's degree with a specialized set of business+ courses - including business, policy, and law. This combination prepares students with the necessary business acumen, entrepreneurial skills, and know how to translate scientific and technological ideas into profitable products and services.

What will I learn?

  • A fundamental and applied knowledge of a particular science/engineering/math discipline.
  • To recognizing the connection between technology and business and how scientific and technical work impacts the business of organizations.
  • The understanding of finance and accounting basics, and the ability to assess the financial aspects of a new scientific venture or project and make recommendations for investments and payback.
  • Understanding of the leadership skills needed to inspire, motivate, and coach individuals and work in diverse teams.
  • Knowing of the core elements of a business case/plan and how to plan, execute, and run a project that helps translate a real technology from idea to commercialization.

Professionally Guided Curriculum: 

The degree is a combination of an MS and MBA degree with 43 credits: 24 credits in the sciences and/or engineering and 19 credits in business. The science courses are taken within a specific concentration in areas such as the life sciences, engineering, mathematics, information technologies, and sustainability. The science concentrations are professionally focused and reflect industry in NJ/NY and nationwide. All of the students take a common business core including finance and accounting, marketing, communication, leadership, project management. In place of a thesis, students work in teams and develop a business plan around a technology in their field. Courses are a blend of traditional (evening), online, and executive education.
