Biology Major with Chem Minor. Is it Worth it?

kastyosokastyoso Registered User Posts: 1 New Member
Hi, I’m majoring in biology with a minor in chemistry. I’m not the type to care what people say because some people are full of crap , but someone said a degree in biology won’t get you anything ? How true is this? I want to be a dental hygienist.

    Dental hygiene is a 2-yr associates degree, or you can do a 4-yr degree in dental hygiene (usually for people who want to teach dental hygiene or just want the BS degree) if it's available at your college, but you get a bachelor's in dental hygiene as a hygienist, not bio or chem.

    Have you talked to your advisor? Seems like you are on a pre-dent track.....heading to dental school.

    It is true that an undergrad bio degree alone isn't really very employable (but neither is a Chem degree). There are tons of bio majors who expected to go to med school, but didn't get in. Yes, talk to your advisor.
