Career Development

What Can I Do With A STEM Degree?
Graduates can branch out or focus their studies through the wide variety of advanced biology fields on plants, animals, ecology, physiology, anatomy, cell biology, molecular biology, and evolution.
Chemistry is a part of everything. With a degree in chemistry, you can pursue careers ranging from organic chemistry to physical chemistry to biochemistry and pharmaceutical sciences.
Mathematics majors can head in many different directions, because they've learned how to think and reason. Employers appreciate that, and graduate programs will accept mathematics majors into almost any program of study.
Teacher Certifications in Secondary Education provide prospective teachers with the attitudes, content, pedagogical knowledge and skills necessary for a teaching career in middle or high school.

The W and Professional Degree Programs

Pre-Professional Advising Within the Department of Sciences and Mathematics

Students planning to continue on to professional schools after their education at MUW are well served toward this goal during their time at MUW.

Students interested in attending Medical School, Dental School, Pharmacy School, and Veterinary School typically major in Biology or Chemistry and are assigned academic advisors in the Department of Sciences and Mathematics.

Medical schools, Pharmacy Schools, Dental Schools, and Veterinary Schools all have very specific academic and extracurricular requirements of their applicants. Students interested in any of these programs are strongly encouraged to consult with their academic advisor and to follow as closely as possible the sequence of courses and activities recommended by the MUW Pre-professional School Advising Program.
