Biology Major worth it?

<p>Hi, I have been scouring the internet about this topic and I cannot come to a conclusion. I am not 100% sure on what I want to major in, but biology is the most interesting subject to me. However, almost everyone on all of these forums say that majoring in biology is a terrible decision. I THINK that I want to go to physical therapy school, but things might, and probably will many many times, change. I do not want to become a doctor or get a PhD for research because I am just not really interested in that. Please help!</p>

<p>A biology degree is only useful as a prerequiste for professional school. Unless you a certain you are going to one you would be far better served getting a marketable degree.</p>

<p>I want to be a registered nurse because I heard it's a profitable occupation, doesn't that require a biology major?</p>

<p>No, you can major in anything and take the pre-requisites on the side. Doesn't your school have a nursing program that you can directly apply into? And don't go into something just because it's profitable. Go into the health field because you enjoy helping others, not because you can make a lot of money. We already have a numerous amount of those, abusing patients.</p>

<p>I'm not interested in nursing. I go to UIUC and with their nursing program, I would get a degree from UIC since UIUC does not directly have their own nursing program. My interest is with the sciences, so I am trying to find a career that is rewarding both physically and mentally.</p>

<p>I actually enjoy learning about biology and human body and systems, but I don't want to be a doctor. What occupation should i do?</p>

<p>Physical Therapy?</p>

<p>Still get a MD. You don't have to be a doctor with a MD. You can be a medical examiner, teach (still a respectably salary in medicine), you can be a anesthesiologist or other specialist who doesn't have to deal with patients (patients are more pleasant when they are unconscious or dead)</p>
