Employment and Graduate Studies

An education in Biology provides a broad and intensive science background for a career and further studies in a variety of fields, including:

  • research
  • health
  • biotechnology
  • education

The Biology major can act as a first step for students interested in applying for master's programs in science, medical, or dental school.


It is exciting to think about how you can take all the amazing experiences and knowledge you gained during the four years with you, to create value and impact wherever you are going next.
