Career Options

Biology is the study of life. Biologists study the diversity, history, and structure of living things and their components, at community, population, individual, cellular, molecular and biochemical levels. A major in biological sciences prepares students for a variety of positions: in research and education; in medical and other health professions; in pharmaceutical, genetic testing, and other biomedical companies; and in government agencies. A degree in biological sciences is the first step toward successful careers such as physician, dentist, veterinarian, teacher, researcher, analyst, administrator or pharmaceutical sales representative.
