Biology is an extremely-broad discipline providing a bewildering array of career options and necessitating the matching of interests, skills and personality to the requirements of various occupations. Many of us like to work outdoors so may be attracted to jobs in agriculture, animal care (zoos, animal parks, veterinary nursing, aquaculture), botanic gardens, horticulture, forestry,etc. Biologists with good communication skills can work as teachers in schools, museums, zoos, nature centres or for the media. Environmental interests could lead to a career as an ecologist, marine biologist, plant or animal geneticist, or to employment as an consultant/advisor on the conservation and management of the environment and natural resources, both plant or animal. Biologists are employed by co-operatives, federal and state agencies, local government, business, non-profit organizations and universities. Alternatively, graduates may continue to study their chosen specialty as postgraduates which can lead to fulfilling careers in research. Postgraduate degrees offered by the School include Graduate Diploma by research or by coursework, Master of Science by research or by coursework, and Doctor of Philosophy by research.
