Whether your career plans are as a professional in medical science, dentistry, veterinary science or research, this degree is a good choice to begin your college-level education. Required course work features hands-on laboratory experience that integrates theoretical concepts with practical applications.

This degree program parallels the first two years of an advanced degree in a biological sciences discipline. Coursework in the biological, physical and social sciences as well as additional elective courses that meet general education requirements for the liberal arts and sciences will prepare you for transfer with junior status to a four-year college or university. Students may also transfer into biotechnology, clinical biology, biochemistry, and environmental biology programs locally and nationwide.

Many of the degree's courses are taught in the Science Center, which includes 25 state-of-the-art laboratories and a Science Study Center.

This program is offered by the Biology, Chemistry and Physics Department.
