Your Dordt education will help you build and communicate a comprehensive vision for Christian discipleship that will enable you to be of service in God’s kingdom in whatever career you choose. In the last decade, 95 percent of biology majors found work or were admitted to graduate school within six months of graduation.
Career opportunities for biology majors are promising.
- Science teachers are in high demand at the upper elementary and high school levels.
- Increases in the number and variety of jobs related to environmental quality are likely, both in the field and in organizations that influence policymaking and implementation.
- Advances in genomics and bioinformatics are creating a demand for graduates capable of working in this field.
Professional and graduate schools look for candidates with strong undergraduate preparation, especially those whose rigorous training in their field is based on a comprehensive educational foundation.
