Want to make progress on your career planning but are overwhelmed with where to start? Consider registering for Biology 2001!  This one-credit pass/fail course provides students structure to engage in career decision-making and planning while breaking down the process into manageable steps.

Consider this course if you want to explore career options in the biological sciences, prepare for job or internship applications or want to organize your graduate school or job application process.

Here’s what CBS  students have to say about BIOL 2001:

"I don’t think I would have had any idea what I was doing if I had not taken this class. I now know where to look for volunteer research, internships, what to expect in interviews, and which items I should be sending in for a number of different situations."
