What Can Being a MCDB Major Do For Me?

The major in MCDB contributes to a liberal education as well as providing excellent preparation for a wide range of professional careers in medicine, public health, the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, science writing, teaching, as well as biological research. MCDB undergraduates at Yale have a high rate of acceptance at medical and graduate schools. Today, with the use of genetic testing in court cases, the patenting of biological products, procedures for assessing environmental impact, and the general importance of biological issues in the public arena, this major can also be helpful in law, business, consulting and government careers.
