A biology master’s degree prepares a student for pursuing a PhD or healthcare practitioner (MD, DO, DDS, PA) for work in a hospital, nursing home, or other medical-related fields. Others use the degree to gain research science positions in laboratories that apply biotechnology to solve problems in medicine, industry, agriculture, or the regulation of drug approval. Many graduates also hold management positions in biomedical organizations.
