Colleges with Biology/Biological Sciences Majors

Are you fascinated by animals, wildlife, plants, forests and oceans? When you go out hiking, do you find yourself studying the trees, the leaves, the soil? If understanding life on Earth, how it got here, how it changes, where it’s going, is what really gets your blood pumping, then a Biology Major is definitely for you.

Biology majors spend considerable time in both laboratory settings and out in the world. If your idea of a good time travelling is to jump right in, get your feet wet, and bring back specimens to study under a microscope, then you’re going to be happy with a major in Biology.

Useful classes in high school include all things science: advanced biology, chemistry, physics, and courses in mathematics.

Biology majors can find work in academics as biologists and researchers or as college professors, but are also routinely hired into industries that require biological knowledge, such as oil and natural gas, fish and wildlife conservation, manufacturing, and public health.

Famous figures with Biology majors include Greg Graffin, lead singer of Bad Religion, Lisa Kudrow, and Drake Hogestyn, actor from Days of Our Lives.
