Undergraduate Post Graduation Placement

What do Biological Sciences students do after graduation? How many enter the workforce versus attending a graduate/professional school? What companies do they work for? What is their average starting salary? What graduate/professional schools do they attend?

The First Destination Career Outcomes dashboard currently includes data from the Classes of 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022. The data reflects graduates’ first destination outcome through December 31st of each year.

Some recent graduates chose not to provide employer, job title, salary, and/or graduate school information in their response. Please note: If the number of responses is small, results are not displayed to protect the identities of individual respondents. The salaries are skewed low because there are many students who do low paying research as a gap year before medical/graduate school.
