Biology

Become a highly skilled biologist

The 21st century is being called the “Age of Biotechnology,” as new technologies are developed and marketed to deliver life-saving techniques, agricultural products, cost-effective energy, and a cleaner environment.

Are you interested in medical research, healthcare, the study of the environment, or the preservation of forests and wildlife? As these fields of study assume a higher national and international priority, the need for highly skilled biologists is escalating.
