Johns Hopkins University offers an innovative graduate degree program that prepares students for success in the field of bioinformatics. The program draws upon the strengths of the Johns Hopkins’ Biotechnology and Engineering programs to create a rigorous and comprehensive bioinformatics curriculum. The program integrates computer science, biosciences and bioinformatics disciplines.
 
The MS in Bioinformatics program immerses students in the topics and applied methods of computational modeling, molecular biology, systems biology, structural biology, proteomics, genomic sequencing and genomic analysis, microarrays and microarray analysis.
 
Students in the bioinformatics degree program take 11 courses to complete degree requirements, five core courses, four concentration courses, an elective from bioscience and an elective from computer science. After completion of the core and concentration courses, students may choose an independent study project as one or both of their electives.
 
Flexible Study Opportunities
 
Designed for working adults, the program offers courses conveniently online and onsite. Student can elect to complete the degree entirely online. Onsite courses are taught during evenings or weekends at either the university’s Homewood Campus in Baltimore, MD, the Montgomery County Campus in Rockville, MD, or at the HEAT Center in Aberdeen, MD. Onsite students can choose courses offered in our state-of-the-art wet lab (link to virtual tour).
 
Students have up to five years to complete their degree. Typically, students working full-time complete the degree in about two years.
