Future plans:

After completing my degree, I plan to pursue a graduate degree in Biological Research before settling into a job. Currently, I would like to work as a researcher in ecology, cell biology, or a similar field.

How has your major contributed to your professional or personal development?

The research opportunities offered to biology students allows us to try out different labs and fields of study before pursuing higher education and a career. I don’t know exactly what I want to study, so the various classes and labs will help me decide where I want to go with my research.
