Biology and Life Sciences
The outlook for careers in biological sciences is excellent. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts steady growth for the biology and life science industry through 2022. For instance, employment in the fields of biochemistry and biophysics, which study the chemical and physical properties of organisms, is anticipated to grow by 19 percent through 2022. Agricultural and food scientists, who work to ensure safe and efficient food production, should experience a 9 percent growth in this period. And zoology and wildlife biology, which explore animals and wildlife, are expected to grow by 5 percent.
