Thank you comment icon You can become a doctor, biology teacher, do research or become a genetic counselor. To be a genetic counselor you must enroll in a university that accredited by the National Society of Genetic Counselors. There are only 39 in the country to be accredited. Guillermo

Hi Olivia,


There is a great website called O*Net (onetonline.org) that shows a lot of data and information for different careers, including Biology. Here is what the search option shows: https://www.onetonline.org/find/quick?s=biology


Here are two other Career Services sites that may help:

Herman’s Answer

Hi Olivia,

There are a lot of careers in biology. I personally studied biochemistry and molecular biology as an undergraduate.

After graduating, most people usually go either into Academia (school), or industry (biotechnology/pharmaceutical companies). Or graduate school.

I personally chose to work in industry after I graduated from my Bacehlors, and I began in manufacturing where I helped produce oncology drugs. I now help oversee clinical trials at a pharmaceutical company. There are many options, from working in research, operations, supply chain, quality, and more!

Additionally, I know some people who studied biology with me in college who are now in healthcare professions, from nursing, to doctors, to dentists and pharmacists. There are a lot of options!

I hope I was able to help! Good luck!

Best regards,
Herman
