Be Surrounded by Opportunities
If you're fascinated by living things, you’re in the right place.
Some biology majors want to apply their knowledge to environmental activism; others want to research their countless questions in lab settings; others want to pursue further schooling to become doctors. Whatever you want to do, all biology majors are connected by one thing: curiosity. You’re fascinated by the world around you, and you want to find out as much as you can to satisfy your interest. In your courses, you’ll deepen your understanding of biology and engage in practical experiences to prepare for life after graduation.

To make sure she was prepared to achieve her dream of being a marine biologist, Claire Stuart cast a wide net for fresh-water experiences as an undergrad research assistant. "That really introduced me to the world of research, and it was wonderful. Science is science. The patterns and protocols of research follow the same theme throughout. Jumping to saltwater was not a big deal at all." The experience she got as an undergrad at UW-Green Bay helped her land a job at NOAA (the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) to observe shrimp and reef fisheries primarily in the Gulf of Mexico.
