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.

After studying here, I know what it means to be in Neuroscience. I know the sacrifices I have to make; it’s a demanding career, not immediately gratifying, you have to do a lot of work before you see any results.
