About

The program, which places an emphasis on lab research, provides a solid foundation for those who plan to continue their education at the doctoral level.

Overview

Students who complete our graduate studies program leave NCCU with an M.S. in Drug Discovery or Biomanufacturing. 

The development of our Ph.D. program is currently underway. This two-year program has been developed by our highly credentialed faculty (nearly 100% of whom have industry experience) and biotechnology experts, including representatives from Biogen Idec, Merck, GlaxoSmithKline, Bayer Corporation and Novozymes. We also have a dedicated career development staff that helps students obtain assistantships, work aid and scholarships, find jobs and more. Our students also have the opportunity to take advantage of cross-departmental offerings with the NCCU Schools of Law and Business to participate in classes associated with bioethics and intellectual property. Specialized classes are also available through North Carolina State Universitys BTEC program and through the North Carolina Community College system.
