What career possibilities are there if I study genetics, software engineering or accounting in post-secondary?

I enjoy biology but I don't want to be a doctor or anything, so I'm just wondering what other opportunities are out there. If there aren't any careers in biology I'm interested in I would probably switch to software engineering or accounting. What are your thoughts? And are there any university programs you would recommend for these subject areas?

In whatever area of biology you choose in biology you can work with the government in ministries, environmental firms (which are many and of different environmental areas), research institutes or centers, and conservation centers as well. Some interesting areas in biology include ecology, microbiology, plant ecology and forestry, marine science and genetics. Any part of biology related to plant tends to be an interesting area due to the fact that it is the ultimate reliable solution to the effect of global warming.There are many more...
