The Associate in Science in Biology for Transfer program provides students with a foundation in core principals of biological sciences, including scientific reasoning, cell/molecular biology, principles of genetics, evolution, organismal, and ecology in preparation for transfer to a baccalaureate degree program in biology at a university. Students at the four-year university have the opportunity to pursue a Bachelor’s degree specializing in areas such as anatomy and physiology, botany, cell and molecular biology, clinical science, ecology, environmental biology, field biology, marine biology, microbiology, organismal biology, or zoology. A bachelor’s degree in biology may lead to opportunities in graduate/professional school or careers in research, biotechnology, dentistry, pharmacy, medicine, and veterinary medicine among many other diverse fields.
