The field of botany, or plant science, has been growing thanks to technological advances and research. While an advanced degree is required for most research positions, you can still find opportunities with a bachelor’s degree.

Federal and state governments employ plant scientists and researchers. A few areas to look into include the Department of Agriculture and Department of the Interior (which includes the National Park Service, the Bureau of Land Management, and other offices related to the managing the American land), as well as the Environmental Protection Agency.

You can also work in research as a technician or assistant as a new grad. Industries you might work in include food and drink, healthcare (particularly pharmaceutical companies), oil and energy, paper and lumber, or biotechnology. Who knows? Your contributions may help create something everyone will use in a few years.
