Biology is a diverse and exciting field. Both as preparation for specific professional careers and as the focus of a general liberal arts curriculum, a major in Biology is an excellent choice for many Stanford students. The Biology major can serve as a stepping-stone for a wide variety of career opportunities, such as medical, dental, or veterinary school, or for a graduate program in the biological and applied sciences. It can also serve as a valuable and satisfying focus of a liberal arts education for those not planning careers in science-related fields.
