Your Future Success
Success in the Field
Across the country and around the world, UE's biology alumni are putting what they've learned to use as they excel in grad school and in their chosen careers.
Over the last five years, 90 percent of UE biology graduates are currently studying or working in a STEM-related field.
Biology graduates have found successful careers across an array of fields, and many have pursued graduate or professional school after leaving UE. Graduate and professional schools our alums have attended include Georgetown University School of Medicine, Saint Louis University School of Medicine, Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Iowa College of Dentistry, Southern College of Optometry, Indiana University School of Medicine, Duke University, Northwestern University, Vanderbilt University, Washington University, University of Louisville, and the University of Illinois School of Veterinary Medicine.
I love the Biology Department, especially because there are so many ways to get involved and enhance my education and leadership skills.

During my freshman and sophomore years, the older biology students always went out of their way to help me and answer my questions.
Experience as much as you can. UE offers a variety of opportunities to learn and grow, in and outside of the classroom.
I decided to come here because of the close connections between peers and faculties: the small campus makes me feel welcomed and cared.
At UE, I feel like my professors know me as a person, rather than as just a name on a roster.
UE had excellent pre-medicine curriculum that set me ahead of a lot of my classmates once I got to medical school.
Use the opportunities at UE to discover your passion and the expertise to help you build your knowledge base and develop skill sets.
UE gave me an introduction to higher education and a world that I was not familiar with before.

I’m hoping to start my career in either cancer or medical genetics realm!
It is an amazing gift to be able to go to a school where the professors care about each and every student
I chose UE because of the small campus atmosphere.
Biology and Chemistry
I have friends who are studying biology or chemistry at other schools, and I was working in the lab early on while they were still in the classroom.
I could tell that academics were a priority here and that professors genuinely cared about their students’ success both inside and outside of the classroom.
Environmental Science, Applied Biology, and Chemistry
I realized that I had the ability to make a difference in my community, and that I have a responsibility to ensure that our planet will be here for generations to come.
The faculty and staff were so welcoming during my visit.
I chose UE because I was attracted to the small, close-knit science community and the personability and availability of the professors.
