John Brown University's Biology department has experienced great success in assisting students in gaining acceptance into graduate and professional schools.
Biomedical Research - there are many opportunities in government, medical schools, pharmaceutical companies, and individual researchers for students with training in biological technology. Research can be done with a bachelor's or master's degree. However, a long-term career in the field of biomedical research usually requires a Ph.D.
Clinical Work (Physician, dentist, optometry, therapist, nurse, physician's assistant, veterinary etc.,) - a degree in biology lays a solid foundation for any medical career. Students interested in further medical training have the option of joining JBU's pre-medical program.
Missions or Humanitarian Work - Students can easily use their knowledge in biology for non-profit organizations that deal with agricultural, ecological or environmental community development.
Ecology - students majoring in biology may wish to pursue a career in ecology or related fields. Forestry, environmental management, renewable energy, or environmental research are all possible options for those interested in the field of ecology.
Graduate School - many graduates of biology choose to continue their studies in a field of particular interest with graduate degrees.
Graduates of the Biology Department can be found in a variety of careers including:
- Physicians Assistants
- Physical Therapy
- Medical Technology
- College Professors
- High School Teachers
- Community Development
