Beginning this fall, Hagerstown Community College is offering certificate and degree programs in biotechnology.
College officials have said the courses are a response to the increased demand for biotech workers in the area.
The HCC program has been designed for technicians-in-training who plan to enter the biotechnology industry after completing their certificates or associate degrees and/or to proceed to four-year colleges and universities.
Established in 1946, HCC was the first community college to open its doors in Maryland. Today, it serves the Tri-State area, offering more than 120 degree and certificate programs for university transfer or job entry, as well as continuing education and adult basic education. Classes are offered throughout the year in traditional 15-week semesters. There are several shorter sessions.
