Biology | St. Lawrence University Career Services


Many occupations today require a college educated individual who can write and speak well, solve problems, learn new information quickly and work well with others on a team. This means that college graduates use their education in a wide variety of fields, and your future career may relate more to your personal career interests, work values and transferable skills than any specific academic major. However, this list contains a representative sample of job titles of former graduates with a biology or marine biology major. Use this as an idea list, and remember that it represents some, but certainly not all, of the careers you might consider. Individuals with bachelor's degrees should expect jobs in the technician category. In general, a graduate degree is necessary for supervisory jobs. Those obtaining employment immediately upon graduating are usually those with the best college records and a willingness to relocate to find a job. A solid background in chemistry and good computer and communication skills also are helpful in finding employment.
