A Bachelor’s Degree in Biology Opens Career Doors

Biologists can specialize in a variety of fields, but a commonality between them is that they typically enjoy taking a closer look at the life forms around us — like animals, plants, or the human body — and how they function, by themselves and as part of a larger system. As a biology student, you will study biological systems responsible for energy flow and diversity of life.
