    Ursuline’s Biology program provides the unique opportunity to customize your experience by picking from three majors: Biology, Life Science, or Biotechnology, and from concentrations in Pre-Medicine and Medical Technology. Other distinctive aspects of the program include innovative partnerships with graduate programs to accelerate your path into professional schools for medicine and podiatry, as well as student-led research opportunities, including the annual Student Research Symposium.


    Graduates of the Biology program pursue their interests in a variety of careers. Some obtain entry-level jobs to gain experience and develop their work skills; others seek additional education to enter specialized professional programs.

    For students interested in obtaining employment immediately after graduation, options include:

    • Business: In areas such as marketing or corporate law, or in industries such as pharmaceuticals or medical supplies.
    • Technology: Practitioners must obtain clinical experience and become licensed to practice in the state of Ohio.
    • Research: Biologists may work in academia, in government or in private research laboratories; industries also hire biologists to conduct research and do product development and testing.
    • Education: Biology teachers are commonly employed in various educational institutions at the precollege levels. Museums, botanical gardens, aquariums, zoos, science centers and outdoor education programs also offer the biology graduate many opportunities.
