Career Opportunities

career_opportunitiesThe major in Cell and Molecular Biology prepares the student for a variety of careers which require a working knowledge of biological principles and the molecular and cellular approaches to solving basic problems or to improving the quality of human life. Students who wish no further formal training after their B.S. degree find positions in education, government and industry, especially in the expanding health-services, biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. The B.S. in Cell and Molecular Biology is also ideal preparation for careers requiring additional study, such as medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, nursing and other health-related professions, environmental policy and law, and professions requiring a graduate degree in biology or the other biomedical sciences.
