About

The Biology program at The Ohio State University exposes students to a broad base of biological knowledge, provides depth of experience in advanced topics and develops competence in scientific disciplines that are supportive of the life sciences (mathematics, physics and chemistry).

Overview

Biologists study the processes fundamental to all forms of life. Biology strives to answer questions such as: How do biochemical processes control a cell’s behavior? How do organisms grow and reproduce? How do pollutants threaten certain life forms? How can human life be sustained and lengthened by medical advances?

The Biology program at The Ohio State University is a stepping stone from which students may go into research, various health professions, teaching, business, or service in government or independent agencies.

Program objectives

Graduates of the biology program will be prepared to:

  • explain major biological concepts and discuss how these are connected with various areas of the biological and physical sciences;
  • apply concepts from mathematics and other science disciplines for the analysis of processes in living organisms;
  • demonstrate problem solving, analytical and communication skills that will provide the foundation for lifelong learning and career development;
  • value biology as an integral part of society and everyday life.

Possible careers

Biology students often choose careers as research scientists or college professors, for which students must first obtain a PhD. In the private sector, a master’s degree may be sufficient for a research or product-development position. Some biology majors, particularly those with research experience, find research assistant positions directly after obtaining their bachelor’s degrees.

Many biology students go on to careers in medicine or some other health profession. While a major in the biological sciences is not a requirement for medical school (or other professional schools in the health sciences), it has many advantages with its exposure to the basic principles of life’s processes and the theoretical underpinnings of sophisticated medical procedures.

Some students move into other science careers such as education (K–12), business (e.g., pharmaceutical sales), or jobs in nature centers, parks and recreation, or government.
