Why Should I apply for a Master’s degree after graduation? I am a molecular biology and genetics student

I want to follow a path that is academic and in which I can expand my knowledge about the field I am interested in. I cannot think of a life without inquiry and I decided to plan my studies such that I question the nature of life and discover the unknown. However, when I ask myself, why I should do a master’s? I can’t find any other answer to it except expanding my knowledge. Is there a better way to follow? What should I do? Why should I do master’s? I am looking forward for your answers!

I grew up impoverished, homeless and in foster care. Now, I’m graduating university with a degree in biology and applying to medical school. AMA.

I was bounced around from house to house, survived off of food banks/donations, lived in shelters, and landed in foster care at the ripe age of 12. The highest level of education anyone has in my family is a high school diploma. I was told by a ton of people in my life that I wouldn’t amount to anything. I was always told that I probably wouldn’t even graduate high school, let alone go to post-secondary (bc <50% of foster care students graduate high school & <10% graduate post secondary). Now, I’m going into the final semester of an honours biology degree and I’m studying to write the MCAT and apply to medical school. Ask me anything!

Honors/Biology Classes & Thesis for Honors Graduation

I'll be transferring to MTSU in the summer of 2019 from a community college. I will be majoring in Speech Language Pathology and Audiology with a minor in Biology. I'd like to graduate from the Honors College and will be taking the Honors biology courses to fulfill both of those aspects.

How challenging/difficult are the biology honors classrs if anyone knows? Or if you know anything about any honors classes? What makes them different from regular classes?

Also, what is the thesis like? I read on MTSU's website you can do a research thesis or a creative thesis. Something like that.

If you know anything at all related to any of this, it would be so helpful! Thanks!

EDIT: Thanks every one for your responses. I definitely feel like Honors is something I could do, with a little more studying and focus on my courses. Thanks again!

About to graduate with a degree in general biology, but now I’m chronically ill and no longer have an interest in graduate school. Am I screwed? What options are available to me?

I originally was going for the bachelor’s degree in general biology because I wasn’t sure exactly what career I wanted, but thought that the general degree would keep my options open. Also, I was really interested in biology and knew I wanted to have a job involving field work/conservation/wildlife biology. However, most of the entry level jobs require years of prior experience and a master’s degree, both of which I don’t have.

Also, I’ve developed several chronic illnesses and daily pain that have still not been diagnosed over the last 4 years and feel like I can’t do any field work at this point. I’ve also been dealing with a great deal of depression, brain fog, fatigue, extreme social-anxiety, and fractured sleep. I feel like doing nothing except figuring out what’s wrong with my body and managing my pain. Life right now is just school, stress, and doctor’s appointments.

I also thought about going to graduate school to open up my job prospects a bit more, but I have no idea what kind of program to pursue. I don’t want have a career in research - I have had a few semesters of research experience as an undergrad at a community college and found out that it’s not really for me. I’m also feeling so burned out with studying and I’m unsure if I really want to go to grad school.

Right as I was about to start volunteering in labs at my college, the pandemic hit, and school was moved to online for a long time. So, I have no lab experience, and my school is back online again for the semester because of the Omicron variant, and so I can’t find any labs that will take me in.

I feel like I really messed up. I only have had 1 internship over a summer at a museum, a couple semesters of research experience, no volunteer experience, and absolutely no work experience aside from being a postmates delivery driver. Plus, I’ve forgotten almost all of my statistics and coding since I’ve been busy with other classes over the semesters. I don’t have any skills and can’t provide much value.

The worst part is that I just turned 30 and am about to graduate with a degree in general biology that doesn’t really have any good job prospects unless I go to grad school…but I have no idea which grad school path to take. I don’t know what I want to do with my life, and I’m really worried that my health will continue to get worse (feeling worse with every month that passes), which will definitely impact the kind of work I’m able to do.

I definitely should have thought through this m

Plant Biology Post Graduation Guidance/Direction

So at 25 I graduated with my degree in Plant Biology from the University of Texas at Austin last summer. Mostly been dealing with personal issues that are now at of the way. Problem is I just don't really have much direction on what to do next. I absolutely want to study further but I have no idea how to approach the next few steps. I figured the logical approach would be to look at careers I would love to have and work backwards from the required pHD speciality. I just am so decided so I was hoping some of you Botanists would be able to say point me in the right direction. Some of the things/topics I have been looking into/interested in are:

  • Work with Conifers
  • GMO Pubic Perception
  • Environment
  • Sustainability
  • Toxicology of Plants
  • Paleo Botany
  • Museum/Botanical Garden Work

I would love to travel, work in a nice lab, places of interest would be Japan. Areas of interest are temperate forests and rainforests. I would love to interact with the public, I really want some position that would really have immediate and long term benefits for society. I really just could use any pointers at all. Currently I need to get my GRE done and recommendation letters since I was not exactly the go to the office and know my professor type of student. I would appreciate any words of wisdom. If you know a place I can get work with my current degree that too would be awesome! That way I can gain experience and perhaps help me figure out my passion. Thanks for any and all comments/advice, I really appreciate any help. If you feel the need to ask me a question please do if it will help you help me!

For the Biology/Science Students who started a research job after graduating: How?

My strengths definitely lie in research. Specifically wetland and scientific research. The courses with labs are always easiest and I never tire of doing repetitive work in the lab or writing reports. I don’t want to pursue a masters immediately as I’m unsure which specific biology field I’d want to go into to, so instead I want to be a research assistant of some sort in a lab for a year or two and then see if anything specifically sparks my interest (I don’t want to be stuck in a masters program only to not like it best or feel like I’m studying for the sake of studying you know?)

But whenever I search up research assistant jobs they’re often not for fresh graduates and require 2-3 years experience in a similar field etc. But I know students do it and have done it before. So for those who managed to get a research job after university: how did you do it? And what advice would you give me? I’d appreciate any help. This semester is hell for me but Ik I can make it through it. I just don’t need to added anxiety of the future weighing on me you know?

It's grad school recruitment season! I am a recent graduate who was a student liaison for admissions for my STEM grad program (Biological Sciences) at an R1 institute for 4 years. AMA!

As a student liaison, I helped run two separate recruitment rounds each year. Each liaison at our program is responsible for one interviewee each round, and we guide that person through the interview process, get them to all their meetings, and in general act as the point of contact. I reported to the lead liaison, who is a voting member on the admissions committee and votes based on the input received about each candidate from the liaisons. I remember learning a lot from current students about the admission process and grad school in general when I was interviewing with schools, so if this might help at all, ask away!

Those in Bioengineering/Computational Biology/Bioinformatics or drug delivery/discovery/pharmaceutics, what does the job market look like for you upon graduation?

I have a general idea of what I want to study in graduate school, I know I want to work in drug delivery or drug discovery, and I know I most likely will want to work in industry rather than academia after I complete a PhD. I'm not sure if getting a PhD in one of these fields would be my best choice, or if going for a PhD in Computational Biology/ Bioinformatics would be better.

I realize I probably shouldn't be worrying about this question now since I'm still an undergrad but all of these fields are incredibly interesting to me so really I just want to pick one that will enable me to work in biology (specifically fields that related to medicine) and will provide ample employment opportunities.

Non-MLS/MLT ASCP/AAB/AMT Certifications for General Science Graduates (Biology, Chemistry, etc.)

Hey all! Over the year or so that I've been working in diagnostic labs, I've asked (and been asked) what certifications a non-MLS/MLT program graduate would be eligible for. After combing through the selection of certifications relating to medical laboratory diagnostics from ASCP, AAB, and AMT, I've compiled a list of possible certifications for those seeking to enter diagnostics in non-MLS/MLT roles. These typically require education and/or experience in one way or another, but if you meet the criteria, then this is a great way to get your feet wet if you're interested in getting closer to the field!

ASCP

  • MB (Molecular Biology): If you're straight out of school and managed to work in a research lab during your academic career, you could be eligible to sit for this exam through Route 3. In addition to the typical stipulations regarding your bachelors, the clinical work experience can be substituted with *one year of full time acceptable veterinary, industry or research experience in a molecular biology laboratory in the U.S. or Canada within the last 5 years*. One of my former coworkers actually came out of undergrad with research experience and was able to sit for the MB exam.
  • HT (Histotechnician): Similar to the MB certification above, you would be eligible to sit for this exam through Route 2 if you have a bachelors and *one year of full time acceptable veterinary, industry or research experience in a histopathology laboratory in the U.S. or Canada within the last 5 years*.

AAB

  • As far as I know, every single one of their certifications requires work experience in one way or another in a clinical setting. However, if you meet the education requirements (such as a degree in a biological/chemical science), you could still sit for the exam, but will receive a provisional certification which will be lifted once you meet the work experience requirement. Considering that all disciplines require a minimum of 3 months of experience, if one were to pass the exam, the provisional status could help your chances of being hired at a reference laboratory to gain the experience. I believe this is one of the only ways to sit for a certification exam without having met all of the requirements. (I am specifically referring to their categorical, not generalist certifications).

AMT

  • MDT (Molecular Diagnostics Technologist): Through Route 3 or 4, you would be eligible to sit if you have a higher education sc
