After completing a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Microbiology and Immunology at Dal, you’ll have a number of options for further study. Of course, you could choose to pursue a Master of Science (MSc) in Microbiology or Immunology, immersing yourself in more advanced research that could eventually lead you to doing a PhD.
You could also pursue a law degree, specializing in an area related to health law and policy. You might also specialize in corporate law, allowing you to better represent a biotech company, for example, with your combined background in medicine and law.
If you’re interested in combining your knowledge of science with business, you could pursue a Master of Business Administration (MBA) in Science and Technology.
