: Hello, I was wondering, do most health/science/lab specific jobs after university care about what major you were or rather do they look at the courses you took and any extra-curricular activities/ research and experiences you've had? For example If I was in Integrated sciences and essentially took most of the same courses as a Biology major, would they look at the two majors similarly?..On the other hand I know that graduate programs don't care what you majored in as long as you meet the prereqs
Sometimes they prefer certain majors but you have the freedom to take any courses you want, especially if you’re in Integrated Sciences. You can take all the same labs as students in BIology or Biochemistry, in order to gain the skills you need for certain jobs.
People care more about your skills and not so much your major. Sometimes the specialization you graduate with is a good indication of the type of skill-set you might possess, but it doesn’t mean you took all the courses or gained the experience that the employer is looking for.
I work in Web Development/Design and Communications, but the job posting said they preferred a Computer Science or Marketing student, I got the job anyway even though I studied Biology. asked by Anonymous
