Without a doubt, the Biology degree is the most versatile of the many degrees in the life sciences. Over half of our majors (in all of our degrees) go on for an advanced degree such as the Master of Science or the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D). Historically, Biology has placed more of its majors in medical and dental schools than any other department at Texas A&M. In addition, a large number of our majors complete teaching certification in order to take positions as science teachers in secondary schools. Qualified science teachers continue to be in high demand, giving the applicant options to go to nearly any area of the state or country where they might choose to live. Business, industry, and government continues to hire many of our graduates where skills and knowledge in the life sciences are in great and growing demand. Furthermore, training in Biology provides a unique perspective in other professions such as Law, Architecture, Engineering, Business and Management.
