Life Sciences Degrees

Life sciences programs can prepare students for careers in a wide variety of areas, such as conservation and environmental agencies, consultancy companies, pharmaceutical industries, and hospital laboratories. Students can also be prepared to work in jobs where they use their skills of research, production, sales, marketing, monitoring, analysis, and diagnostics. They may also move into the areas of academic research or teaching. Most graduates go on to take science-related jobs or pursue higher academic degrees. The areas of specialization within the life sciences are broad and include biochemistry, biology, botany, cell biology, molecular biology, microbiology, and zoology.

One example of a common specialization within the field of life sciences is biology. In this specialization, students are expected to learn to ask questions, evaluate, observe, and solve problems. They can study the interactions among living things. And their work may take them from a laboratory where they are studying organisms under a microscope to a rainforest where they observe the behavior of monkeys. Those who choose this specialty typically strive to better understand the natural world that surrounds us and tackle important issues such as environmental degradation.
