The job outlook for people with degrees in biology and biotechnology is on the rise, and St. Petersburg College will be sharing the opportunities those degrees offer at our upcoming Biology Open House.

The open house event will be held at the college’s Clearwater Campus, at 2465 Drew Street, Clearwater, FL 33765, in room ES 127 on Wednesday, Oct. 18, from 5:30 p.m. until 7 p.m.

St. Petersburg College’s associate degree in Biotechnology Laboratory Technology will give you the hands-on skills and experience you need to join one of the fastest growing industries in the nation -and work to make the world a better place. Biological Technicians assist biological and medical scientists in laboratories by operating and maintaining laboratory instruments, conducting and observing experiments and recording results in detail.

“The biotechnology program at St. Petersburg College was specifically tailored and designed from the very beginning so that students get the exact skills that employees want. I know that if I hire graduates of SPC’s program, they will be able to perform in a lab and help me be productive,” said Michael Shamblott, associate professor at the University of South Florida’s College of Medicine.

Our bachelor’s degree in Biology will get you ready for a career in health care, education, conservation, research or continued graduate work in medical, dental or veterinary school. With a degree in biology, you can work in a variety of careers in the biological sciences, like health care, education, conservation and research, or pursue graduate degrees such as a Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy, or study medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, or pharmacy.
