Hi there! There are a lot of opportunities with a Biology Degree, however most require further study. Most people that obtain biology degrees go on to get a Master or PhD degree. You can teach high school biology if you decided get a Masters in Education. Also getting your master's degree or PhD in Biology or related field would lead you to working as a researcher or professor. Many times pharmaceutical companies, the government, universities, and food companies will hire researchers. If you were to get a PhD or Masters in a specialty field you could have titles such as zoologist, herpetologist, biochemist, etc. Other options include pursing a Medical degree in Human or Veterinary Medicine. You can apply to pharmacy school, Physician's assistant school, Dental school, or Optometry school. All of these require specific things, but a basic BIology degree will typically cover many classes required before applying. If you did not pursue further study then your options are more limited to things such as a medical or research technician.
