Biology Areas, Fields and Industries

One major aspect that undergraduate students in the biological sciences program can and should keep in mind while they commence and progress in completing their degree is what within biology genuinely interests them. While medical sciences is the most popular interest for many life science students, it is not the only option out there for biology students. Below is a list of areas and fields that biology students can get involved in:
