Overview

  • What makes biology exciting is its diversity. A biologist might gather field samples for environmental impact statements, study the responses of whole organisms to stress, or insert new genes into a microbe. Biologists seek to unravel the mystery of living organisms from biomolecules to ecosystems A biology major needs to understand how data is gathered and how conclusions are drawn. You can focus your studies in one of several core areas leading to a variety of careers in fields like teaching, industry, health care, or research. Or you can apply your biological knowledge to careers outside the traditional, like science writing or environmental law.
  • A large proportion of biologists work in laboratories, in areas of research or industrial technology, or in health-related fields. The expansion of biology into fields beyond the traditional sciences is especially fast-growing, producing new opportunities in law, business, journalism, and related professions. With a background in biology, some students pursue careers in teaching, management, or sales, as science writers or illustrators, or as medical librarians.
