What happens when you discover you have no “chemistry” with your chosen major? Becky Baker '16 found a new one – biology – another field that would allow her to work in a lab setting. And then, when UNH Manchester added a biotechnology degree to its offerings, Baker switched majors again.
“It was kind of meant to be,” Baker says. On May 19, she became the first graduate of the biotechnology program, which was designed to give students like Baker the skills they need for careers in the lab.
It worked for her. On May 27, she’ll begin working as a laboratory scientist trainee for the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services.
