Why Pathobiology?

Pathobiology majors acquire strong training in biomedical sciences and have many career options. Many PATH students are on a pre-medical (Pre-med), pre-veterinary (Pre-vet), or pre-dental track. Some pursue graduate work in the biomedical sciences while others become technicians in research or commercial laboratories after graduation. Coursework options can be tailored to better prepare you for your career goals; discuss this with your academic advisor.
