Undergraduate Program - Jobs and Careers

A degree in Biology or EEB provides exceptional training to work in most fields of biology. A significant number of students pursue advanced degrees through graduate school, medical school, law school, business school, or public health programs.  Many students also go on to work in either the public or private sector in careers such as government agency officials, crime scene investigators, environmental consultants, research technicians, school teachers, genetic counselors, science writers, zoo technicians and ecotourism guides (to name a few).

Career Services
The University of Arizona's Career Services can assist students in finding and obtaining employment during and after college. There are also many additional resources including resume/CV writing guides, career and job counseling, and employer databases. You will need to log into UAccess to access many of these tools. We've highlighted some below that may help you get started on choosing a career.
