Careers in Plant Biology

Success after UGA is extremely important to us.  Many of our majors have gone on to continue their education at top graduate and medical schools, such as Emory University. They have also pursued careers as plant breeding research professionals, medical research technicians, and more. 

A degree in Plant Biology opens doors to diverse career opportunities, including:

  • research at universities, government laboratories, and at biotech companies,
  • teaching at the high school, college, or university level,
  • management and interpretation as staff biologists with state and federal agencies,
  • administration or sales with plant- or plant product- related industries. 

As science and technology advance, new opportunities are created, and we aim to prepare our students for these opportunities.
