Alumni

Making a difference

Biology and Society alumni are amazing! We admit we are a little biased, but the reality is Biology and Society students go on to do incredible things. While at ASU, students in our programs have opportunities for travel, research, and strong faculty engagement. They are encouraged to ask the tough questions and to figure things out collaboratively. This leads to engaged thinkers who go out into the world and truly make a difference.  Our students go on to medical school, law school, work in policy at a state and national level, public health agencies, lab sciences, the arts, highly ranked graduate programs, strong research institutions, and everything and anything in between.

Take a moment to browse through some of our amazing Biology and Society alumni. If you are one of our previous students, please tell us what you are doing now. We want to hear about it and tell everyone else about you too!
