New Programs 

The following programs have been approved for the 2019-2020 catalog year: 

Biology A.S., (S0652)

Natural Sciences
The A.S. Biology degree offers the student a flexible way to earn a Biology Associate degree. After completing a one-year general biology sequence, the student chooses one of three tracks, biodiversity, cell and molecular biology, or pre-health professions, and takes three additional courses in biology based on those interests. The biodiversity track is for students interested in ecology, field biology, zoology, botany, and similar fields. The cell and molecular biology track is for students interested in molecular biology, genetics, cell biology, and biochemistry. The pre-health professions track is for students interested in medicine, dentistry, and veterinary medicine. This degree may facilitate transfer to baccalaureate majors in biology, and in many cases may facilitate transfer to more specialized majors such as Botany, Ecology, Environmental Science, Genetics, Molecular biology, Microbiology, or Zoology. Students desiring transfer should see a counselor.
