Master of Science in Molecular Medicine/B.S. in Biotechnology 4+1 Program with Drexel University College of Medicine

Through an agreement with Drexel University College of Medicine (DUCOM), students can earn both the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Biotechnology and Masters (M.S.) in Molecular Medicine degrees in 5 years after graduation from high school. Students will spend their first four years at Elizabethtown College fulfilling the requirements for the Biotechnology major, core curriculum, and the essential prerequisites for entry into the Drexel graduate program. During the fourth year of the program, students remain at Elizabethtown and enroll in 9 credits per semester of online or webcasted graduate classes and seminars offered by Drexel University College of Medicine; these are listed as Elizabethtown courses. To maintain their full-time student status in the fourth year, students will conduct a minimum of 2-4 credits of independent research and/or finish any undergraduate requirements while taking the Drexel courses. A BS in Biotechnology from Elizabethtown College will be awarded after successful completion of the fourth year of the program assuming all other College requirements have been met. For the fifth year, students will matriculate at Drexel University and complete the requirements for the MS degree in Molecular Medicine.
