CAREER OPTIONS AND PROFESSIONAL IDENTITY IN BIOLOGY
Credit points: 15
In this subject, you will explore the range of career options for graduates working in biology and biology-related professions, and learn about the future of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) workforce locally and globally. Through a series of workshop activities and assessment tasks, you will explore the importance of ethical conduct when working as a scientifically literate professional and will create a portfolio where they reflect on their professional identity, knowledge base and skillset for a range of job types. This subject addresses La Trobe's Global Citizenship Essential which entails a deep appreciation of how we live in an interconnected world, being able to recognize the global context of concepts, act across cultures and boundaries, and work with diverse communities - now and in the future.
