The Diverse Science...

Biology--the study of life
--is a uniquely diverse science. This diversity is reflected in the wide variety of disciplines and career opportunities open to those in the field. Individuals with training in biology work in the health professions, in agriculture, in the management of natural resources, in biotechnology, and in a host of other professions.

All biologists are interested in what organisms do, how they do it, their interactions with one another and the environment, and how they evolved. Because of the complexity of the field, biologists must be well prepared in other areas, particularly chemistry and mathematics. Biologists also need an understanding of the ethical, political, and economic considerations that arise from contemporary problems in biology.
