Applied Biotechnology Academic Plans of Study

These sample academic plans of study offer suggested sequences based on two courses per semester and are intended to assist students in developing their own academic plans.

Students are required to complete, at minimum, all eleven courses in the curriculum which includes six core courses, three specialty track courses, the capstone prep course and capstone project course. Students choosing to complete more than one track will have additional required courses per track. View the program curriculum.

Some courses have a prerequisite. A prerequisite is a course that a student must complete before enrolling in the more advanced course. Specific track courses could be taken earlier as long as the student has met the prerequisites for the course.

Courses are offered during all three semesters on a rotation. View UW Applied Biotechnology course schedules.
