Masters in Biology

As students work towards their Masters in Biology, they often take courses in cellular biology, microbiology, molecular biology, virology, immunology, neurobiology, endocrinology, genetics, ecology, and evolution. Those students will complete their degree by doing approximately 2 years of classes, advanced exams, and a final thesis. Depending on their specialization, students can expect to work in laboratories and sometimes in the field. They can study a wide variety of subjects such as wildlife in the African Sahara and micro specimens in the laboratory setting. Biology degree graduates work in many areas including research, health care, environmental management, and education. There are new options for biology majors in business, industry, forensic science, science writing, and economics.

Many students find getting their degree online allows them to balance a busy work and family life with extending their educational opportunities. They can do most of the work from home and do it on their own schedules. Biology Master’s Programs obtained online hold just as much weight as those that you would get in a traditional university campus. Many traditional campuses offer online masters classes for students looking to get their degrees without attending a classroom. The student gets the education without the hassle of taking evening classes or scheduling work around class time.

Recent growth in the biotechnology markets have opened up new opportunities for biology majors. Many people are going back to get their Masters degrees in order to advance at their current jobs or to move into other areas of responsibility. Job growth predictions show future job opportunities especially strong in the areas of biotechnology and molecular biology.
