The biology major prepares students for future professional work in the life and health sciences or advanced education in numerous specializations across all fields of Biology. In addition to a high success rate in placing graduates in medical school, physician assistant programs, dental school and other health care professions, a significant number of our students also pursue graduate degrees (both Masters and PhD programs) in fields such as microbiology, physiology, cell biology and ecology. Many other students have been successful in careers in the pharmaceutical industry, and also, importantly, as teachers in primary and secondary education programs.
