The study of life and living organisms is what comprises a major in biology. This major provides a broad base of education on principles governing life processes at the molecular, cellular, organismal, and ecological levels.
With a biology degree, one can be directed into a career related to research, healthcare, working with the environment, education and more. While it is not necessary, because of the broad area of study, many biology majors continue their education into a more specific field depending on the career they are looking to pursue.
