"My book, philosopher, is the nature of created things, and as often as I have a mind to read the words of God, it is at my hand." -- Antony, Christian ascetic, ca. 350 A.D.

The Monmouth College biology major prepares students to be competitive in graduate school in a breadth of potential areas of focus.

Up to 70% of our biology graduates go on to continue their education in graduate or professional schools.

Recent graduates have studied a variety of topics ranging from toxicology to microbiology to international environmental policy.

Monmouth biology alumni have recently entered graduate programs at the following institutions: the University of Illinois, the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, South Carolina State University, the University of Chicago Law School, Dartmouth College, Northwestern University, Purdue University, Louisiana State University, and Ohio State University.

Each year the biology faculty hold a meeting to present information on graduate school to prospective students that includes information on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE).

To assist you in your transition to graduate school or the work place, the Wackerle Career Center offers the Monmouth College Four Year Intentional Career and Leadership Development Program. It is the only one of its kind in the USA. It has been recognized as an exemplary program by educators from all over the world.

By participating in a wide variety of programs, services and experiences on the campus, in the community, in the U.S. and abroad, you will gain the skills and experiences necessary to become a successful leader.
