    Being a biology major doesn’t mean that you have to go to medical school or that you are expected to enter a health care field, although many biology majors choose to take that route. The critical thinking, research, analytical, and organizational skills that you will develop as a biology major prepare you for a variety of careers as well as for success in graduate school.
