Biotechnology is considered a support discipline and can be included in graduate programs in a variety of areas including physiology, nutrition, genetics/genomics and production management.

Animal Science students can choose to include biotechnology courses as part of their plan of graduate work. Alternatively, students can choose a more formal route and specifically include a minor in Biotechnology in their graduate program. The biotechnology minor requires at least six hours of graduate-level biotechnology courses and a thesis research project in an area involving biotechnology.

Visit the NC State University Biotechnology Program website for more information.
