WHAT CAN I DO WITH A BACHELOR'S DEGREE OR MINOR IN BIOLOGY?

Biology students are prepared for a wide range of careers in conservation and wildlife; science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education and policy; scientific communication; research; health sciences and studies and related fields. Trained biologists may work in a variety of fields, or extend their studies to the graduate level. Biologists who enjoy working with people and encouraging them to learn about scientific principles and emerging issues find employment in schools, universities, museums, and other organizations. Science policymakers and advisors directly develop STEM education policy or work with lawmakers to create legislation. Biologists with excellent writing and communication skills can be employed by scientific journals, textbook publishers, online magazines and science blogs or print/media networks, or by universities, government labs or non-profit organizations, trade journals, or other entities in positions that require educating the public about relevant and emerging biology issues.
