The Biology department offers a program leading to an associate of science degree. The required courses in this program will give a student an excellent and broad foundation on which to further his or her studies. Most of the courses in the program have required laboratory components to allow first-hand experience in the study of biology. A laboratory fee is charged for laboratory courses. Upon finishing the requirements for an AS degree in biology, and after acceptance into a major program, a student should be able to obtain a bachelor’s degree at a four-year institution with two additional years of study.

A full year of inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, calculus and physics is highly recommended for any student transferring to a four-year institution.

In summary, the Biology Department serves students seeking: 

to earn a degree in Biology, 
to earn a degree in the Health Sciences, or     
to fulfill general education  requirements.
