Two New Biology M.S. Degrees

IIT's Master of Science in Biology for the Health Professions is suitable as preparation for professional health schools, including medicine, dentistry, optometry, and pharmacy.


IIT's Master of Science in Biology with Applied Life Sciences specialization is for people who are working in the life sciences (pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical technology) industry and want a graduate degree to obtain a more advanced position in industry.

New Biology B.S. Degree

Students who are interested in both biology and computer science may consider the study of bioinformatics.


Bioinformaticians develop ways to gather and analyze data for biology research and other purposes. Advances in biology are often impeded by the glut of ever-expanding datasets and by a lack of dedicated software and algorithms, requiring skilled biologists capable of handling massive amounts of information, performing in-depth statistical analyses, and programming. Bioinformaticians do all of these things.
