Biology

Biology is center-stage in scientific study. Advances in molecular biology and the impetus of the Human Genome Project have led to a focus on the life sciences. The combination of biology and the field of information technology promises an equally exciting future in the years ahead. Biologists work in basic science research and teaching, as well as enter graduate or professional programs in the biological or medical sciences. Possible employment in business firms and laboratories may result from majoring in biology as well.
