Key characteristics of program:

The Master of Science in Bioinformatics program at Endicott, located on the North Shore of Massachusetts in the greater Boston area, is composed of eight 3-credit required courses, two 3-credit electives, and a 6-credit internship or thesis course option for a total of 36 credits. The core eight courses provide students with the breadth of content and technical skills to obtain a variety of bioinformatics jobs as students will have experience in programming, data retrieval and analysis, statistical applications, and the scientific foundation needed to understand the biological context of their work. Courses are offered in a hybrid format, with both online and in-person learning in the Ginger Judge Science Center which houses the North Shore Genome Sequencing Center and a STEM incubator for startup companies. All students will pursue either an internship or integrative thesis during the final summer session. This experience and the elective options enable students to specialize in an area of interest that will make them uniquely attractive for more focused bioinformatics job opportunities of their choosing.

Program Goals:

The Master of Science in Bioinformatics will provide you with technical skills in computer programming, algorithm design, data acquisition and mining, research methods, and statistical analysis in an interdisciplinary and applied learning environment that integrates theory and real-work application.
