Jobs Outlook

Lab Work

Majoring in molecular and cellular biology opens multiple doors for students after graduation. The program prepares students who intend to continue to grad school or applied research in molecular and cellular biology, as well as equipping those who want to branch out into such fields as genetics, biochemistry, developmental biology, or medical research. At heart, the program's goal is to promote the Christian perspective in the field of biological science.

The U.S. Department of Labor recently reported on the career potential for biological scientists, explaining that "biotechnological research and development will continue to drive employment growth" and that biological scientists are needed to "take [our knowledge of genetics] to the next stage." The Department of Labor also notes that "biological scientists are less likely to lose their jobs during recessions ... because many are employed on long-term research projects."
