Our major can be tailored to students’ interests and career goals. Our graduates are well-qualified to pursue careers in all areas of biology or to continue into graduate or professional programs such as medicine and dentistry. Our graduates work for government, NGO’s, and in the private sector.

At Carleton, students learn biology by doing biology – Many of our courses are designed to build practical skills through hands-on work in the lab and in the field. Class sizes, especially after first year, are kept low so that each student can receive the personal attention they need from their instructors. See the links below for more information.
