BioScience Academy

BioScience Academy is a free, two-semester  education and biomedical training program that allows eligible unemployed (or underemployed) Massachusetts residnets  to earn 12 Boston University credits upon successful completion of four courses: Medical Terminology, Essential Methods in Biotechnology, a full-time internship, and one undergraduate BLCS course. BioScience Academy students earn a Certificate in Applied Biotechnology after successful completion of the nine-month program. Students must have an undergraduate degree and a professional resume in STEM (science, technology, engineering, or math).

Along with the four required courses, the program consists of intense laboratory training, internships, and job skill preparation. Graduates of BioScience Academy are qualified for a wide variety of mid-level laboratory jobs in institutions such as biotech companies, universities, and hospitals, among others.  This program is supported by the U.S. Department of Labor through the City of Boston and the SCILS Initiative.
