    Hello, I am currently a college student going for a Biochemistry degree. I was thinking about getting another degree in Biotechnology and I was wondering if this would be a good choice?

    If you are truly interested in the subject and are willing to spend the time and money on it, then I would say yes, it is a good choice. If you're concerned about the time and money you spend on academic pursuits, and you find yourself more drawn to biotechnology, then perhaps you should make a switch. Don't make the decision hastily though.

    You might also want to look into the possibility of pursuing graduate work related to biotechnology instead of doing a second undergrad degree.

    Like Alex said, don't make choices two hastily, depending on how far into your studies, a switch could cause you to have to do additional years to finish your degree. However, if you really want a biotechnology degree it might be worthwhile and still more cost effective than pursuing it as a second degree.

    Yes, that's an excellent point. That would probably be more advantageous than obtaining two undergrad degrees.
