Our student-oriented faculty help students identify, clarify, and achieve their dreams of being biologists, doctors, physician assistants, game wardens, nurses, pharmacists, and teachers. The Biology department offers courses that fulfill requirements for a variety of programs that will transfer to the university of your choice. Upon completion of your course of study, you will earn the Associate of Science degree, and be well-prepared to succeed as you transfer to a four-year institution to complete a bachelor's degree in the field of biology.
