When trying to choose a career or identify the best degree plan to meet your objectives, your first step should be to meet with your advisor or see Dr. Welker in the Biology Advising Center (BNR 101). An advisor can provide initial guidance and may refer you to someone with greater expertise in your particular area of interest.
