Biology Careers & Internships

A challenging and invigorating biology curriculum prepares you for a successful career in healthcare, research, writing, education, public health or management.

Create Your Own Career Path

With an undergraduate biology degree, you can pursue entry-level positions such as a biological technician, botanist, marine biologist, microbiologist, science researcher, science teacher or zoologist. With advanced study, you could become a chiropractor, dentist, doctor or veterinarian.

Average starting salaries for biologists with a bachelor’s degree are $40,700, according to a 2013 National Association of Colleges and Employers survey.
