If you enjoy science and are curious about how living things work, consider studying biology.   

In this program, you’ll learn about life on Earth and how it forms, functions, evolves and interacts. Courses explore topics like evolution, genetics and the cellular process in microorganisms, plants and animals. You’ll also learn about the scientific method and gain hands-on experiences in the lab. Most of our biology students continue their education by transferring to a four-year college or university at a junior standing.

Whether you want a career in science education, zoology, botany, wildlife, ecology, microbiology or biotechnology—or you plan to apply your biology degree toward a future in medicine, nursing or other allied health profession—this program is an excellent start.
