What makes biology exciting is its diversity. A biologist might gather field samples for environmental impact statements, develop cancer
therapies, or manipulate genes. Biologists unravel the mystery of living organisms, from biomolecules to ecosystems. You can focus in one of
several core areas leading to careers in health care, research, business, and teaching. Additionally, you can apply your biological knowledge
to careers outside the traditional, such as science writing or environmental law.
Natural resource science investigates the diversity, use, and management, of the environment such as wildlife, rangelands, water, soil, energy,
mining, policy, and economics. Particular consideration is given to the relationship between humans and the environment. Natural resources is a
broad field of study that feeds into a diversity of disciplines ranging from food and farming, conservation, forestry, and environmental
