Real Opportunities
William Ames pursued a degree in molecular biology and bioinformatics to combine his love of information technology and biology. Graduating in 2011, he says his UW-Parkside education was invaluable. "I cannot argue enough in favor of the molecular biology program," William says. "The last year requires research. At a larger school like UW-Madison, the chance to work in the lab as an undergrad is rare. Quality people don't get an opportunity to get in a lab environment. You really have to have a basis in research to be competent in what the biology field is becoming."
 
Amazing Results
Our graduates are succeeding at some of the top schools in the nation, including the Medical College of Wisconsin, UW-Madison, the University of Chicago, Washington University School of Medicine, and Johns Hopkins. In their professional careers, Parkside graduates play key roles at leading employers such as: Abbott Laboratories, SC Johnson, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Aurora Healthcare, Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare, and many others.
