Good Day to you Mayelin, I have been seeing some wonderful names.
You had a great question I hope to be of some help in finding an answer to your question about a degree in biology, from what I can gather, a biology major, has many related fields that you can work in if you cannot find a job directly in biology. To name a few are a result analyst, formatting some theories, and proving if they are correct or not by experimentation’s, that would be fun. This depends also on how many years of college that you want to contribute and invest into your career path. For example an undergrad in biology would pay much less than a master’s degree or a degree in medicine or other biology related fields. If you are looking for the future of biology that would be so much fun to discover new organisms and tissue cultures, of tissue of people or animals or any micro biology would be great too, Oh and this can be accomplished by the studies that are in laboratories and experimentation. Clinical trials are used too to prove if something is viable or not viable for public use. You can be of great value in the field of a biologist. You could also work in a lab finding cures for disease, or just studying our planet and the species on our planet or maybe in the future you can study other species that have been discovered in space and on other planets the sky is the limit for you in this field. Biology is a field that you want to probably end up getting a doctorate degree in so you can make much better pay work in the finest places and make a difference on our planet. I wish you all the best, if you would like to know more about biology and related fields you can put the word biology and future of in the search engine in your computers address bar to assist you in your search there is a huge inventory many , list also related jobs for you so you can start working with an undergrad while achieving your graduate degree for biology majors. If you need any more help we are here for you at Career Village. Thanks again.

I was and am also still a science fan. My advice is to not view your major in college as a restricting factor for your career down the road. My major in college was Environmental Science with a minor in Biology and my career has been in Financial Services. Your college years are certainly about the joy of learning, but it's really the beginning of your journey. The things we experience in college....opening your mind, being observant, learning to engage with colleagues ( in your case, students) are all qualities that will help you in your chosen career.
Study what you enjoy. Learn as much as you can about others' career choices which can happen in simple conversations with them. These conversations will raise questions in your mind and make you think....which is always good. In my case I decided on a different path from my college major after some reflection and went on to attain additional education in my field of choice. You will have that option as well.
