Biology - Life After Fairfield

Of course, many students majoring in biology follow the pre-med concentration and have become surgeons, family physicians, psychiatrists, dentists, and veterinarians. In addition to medicine and advanced study, career paths chosen by graduates of recent years include allied health fields:

  • Chiropractic
  • Epidemiology
  • Mortuary science
  • Nutrition
  • Medical lab technology
  • Optometry
  • Osteopathy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Physician assistants
  • Public health
  • Podiatry

Several have gone to law school with the aim of specializing in forensics or environmental law. Others have found positions in government agencies where knowledge of biology is a qualification and some have taken business positions in hospital administration or with pharmaceutical companies. Those entering graduate schools have specialized in at least 20 different fields of modern biology.
