CAREER-FOCUSED CONCENTRATIONS

The M.S program in biology opens a wide range of professional doors. In life sciences fields, applicants with a master’s degree typically earn $20-$30,000 more a year than those with only a bachelor’s degree. Since 2014, the life sciences industry in Massachusetts has grown at close to double the rate of the state and U.S. economy. In May 2018, trade association MassBioEd reported a shortage in qualified applicants to fill available jobs, while 83% of life sciences companies recently reported future plans to expand.

Depending on which concentration you choose, Merrimack can help you prepare for roles such as:

  • Laboratory technician

  • Research assistant

  • Senior research associate

  • Associate scientist or Scientist I

  • Biotech or pharmaceutical sales representative

  • Naturalist for community and municipal organizations

  • Conservation scientist

  • Environmental scientist or technician

  • Biology research assistant

  • High school or community college biology teacher
