What Can You Do with a Major in Biology? explores the career opportunities available to a person with a degree in biology. The book is aimed at helping undergraduates evaluate the field of biology as a college major and career choice by exploring the range of career options available; for recent recent graduates and those already in a biology-related career, the book provides alternative career options that might not readily seem apparent.
A key feature of the book are the case studies of individuals who majored in biology and their career choices; these case studies are used to demonstrate the variety of career options related to this major. The case studies include education and work histories, photos, and personal statements.
Readers will also find in the book a summary of the skills and knowledge attained through majoring in biology, the careers requiring the development of these skills and knowledge, and any additional training or licensing requirements beyond the major for these careers. This information is presented in a consistent format of lists and graphics, including contact information for relevant professional organizations and licensing agencies, pay scales, and so forth.
For those readers who are currently in college or soon to be and are deciding on whether or not a major in biology is right for them, the book includes an overview of the typical biology major curriculum, including courses, special projects (e.g., senior theses), and/or internships or fieldwork likely to be required, with examples from various colleges (which may have different requirements and approaches). Additionally included are reviews of outcomes for recent graduates with a biologymajor, including jobs and salaries.
