Life After Ursinus
Biology department graduates have been extraordinarily successful for many decades in using their biological background and other skills learned at Ursinus to advance their careers.
Many of our graduates are accepted at premier graduate programs, almost always to earn a Ph.D., as well as to elite medical, dental, veterinary, and physician assistant programs across the country. Those who choose to enter the scientific work place after graduation from Ursinus are hired at cutting edge biotech firms large and small and many also ultimately pursue a graduate degree, though on a different time table.
Preparation for these careers begins in the undergraduate years and is often grounded in independent learning experiences, detailed elsewhere, but these experiences are often culminated in research presentations and/or publication with faculty co-authors.
Below we offer a representative sample of what our graduates have accomplished in recentacademic years.
