Post-Bachelor's Certificate in Biotechnology Education
The Johns Hopkins Certificate in Biotechnology Education consists of five graduate-level courses that emphasize inquiry-oriented approaches and integrating technology in bioscience education. The program also challenges you to analyze recent research on bioscience education, reflect on your learning and practice, and develop teaching tools and assessment strategies to engage your students in bioscience-related problems and inquiries. The certificate leverages Johns Hopkins University's expertise in biotechnology and teacher preparation to help educators develop effective new approaches to bringing the discipline to life in today's classroom. After completing the Certificate in Biotechnology Education, you may count some credits toward a Master of Science in Biotechnology.
Based on projections from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the biotechnology field is expected to grow significantly over the next decade. To keep up with that demand, schools will continue to step up efforts to bring in educators with the knowledge, passion, and experience to encourage and support the next generation of biotech professionals.
Founded in 1876, Johns Hopkins University, a top tier research university with campus locations in Maryland and Washington, DC, has been dedicated to educating its students and cultivating their capacity for life-long learning, to foster independent and original research, and to bring the benefits of discovery to the world.
Through the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, The Advanced Academic Programs offers various online learning opportunities, showcasing both graduate certificates and graduate degree programs, spanning various industries with the goal of providing a world-class Johns Hopkins education in a part-time format.
• Flexibility - Online students don’t commute to a physical classroom. Instead, they work inside a course management system to complete assignments and interact with instructors and classmates. There are due dates for course work, but students can log in to the course management system at their convenience.
• Excellent Instructors - All AAP courses are taught by highly-accomplished instructors, known for the scholarship and practice of their disciplines. Online courses allow AAP to expand our faculty pool beyond the DC/Baltimore area, offering students the chance to work with excellent instructors from all over the country and the world.
• High levels of interaction - Online students communicate with their instructors and classmates through discussion boards, group assignments, and the occasional live online event. Students often say the online environment allows them to learn as much from their classmates as they do from their instructors and assignments.
All programs are accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
