Understanding the Occurences of the Natural World
The world around us holds infinite possibilities for discovery. Biologists cover a
range of scientific examination from microorganisms to the complexity of an entire
Clark's Biology department emphasizes small classroom size, individual instruction,
and undergraduate research opportunities. The department also provides students with
a rare opportunity to learn from hands-on field or lab work that can include examining
human cadavers, attempts to discover new antibiotics, desert field trips and searching
for native species in the Columbia River Gorge.
Employment opportunities for Biologists vary depending on industry and exist in a
variety of formats: biological technician, bioinformatics chemist, agricultural technicians,
and cellular biologist.
The U.S Department of Labor projects biologist jobs growing at a rate of 5%, with a median wage in the Portland-Vancouver metro area
estimated at $34.08 per hour.
Clark's program offers an Associate of Science (AST1) and Associate in Arts Direct
Transfer Agreement (AA) options. Our program is designed for students planning to
transfer to a four-year institution to pursue a bachelor degree program in biology.
