Online Biology Degrees and Careers


Biology degree programs involve the study of life, in all its different forms -- plants, marine life, mammals -- and all its different processes. Biology students learn about evolutionary biology (the father of evolutionary theory, Charles Darwin, majored in biology), and the chemistry and genetics that make up life. Those with biology degrees may go on to medical or graduate school, in order to hold medical, biomedical, or research positions, or they may put their undergraduate biology degrees to use in other capacities, in health care, education, veterinary medicine, pharmaceuticals, social services, criminal investigations, or in a laboratory.

Education & Career Opportunities in Biology

Coursework includes biochemistry, genetics, zoology, cell biology, and marine and plant biology. Here are some of the areas for people with degrees in biology:

  • Medical/clinical laboratory technologist
  • Pharmacy technician
  • High school teacher
  • Veterinary technologist/technician

Typically, and often preferably for employers, biology majors need to complete postgraduate degrees in order to hold positions in medicine, pharmacology, or biological research. However, biology degree programs provide an excellent overview that is a good foundation for a career path.
