Careers in Biological Sciences


We have heard from students that there is a strong interest to learn more about biology degrees and careers. In an effort to connect  students with the most up-to-date information in the biology field, the Center for Online Education has published a Guide to Online Biology Degrees that covers the most requested topics by students. Some of the information from the link is listed below.  

Copies of the Biological Sciences Careers in Science brochure titled "What can I do with a degree in Biological Sciences?" is available in the departmental offices located in Johnson Science Tower room 720. 

The level of your online biology degree can impact your job opportunities, specialization, and salary. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), biology degrees at the associate level prepare students to work as biological technicians, an entry-level position in the field. Most other jobs require further education for advancement. Many graduates of bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate biology programs pursue more research-intensive, hands-on careers in healthcare, laboratory work, and nature conservancy, among others.
