The Biology program offers courses that are intended to create interest and enrichment through the study of living organisms and the basic biological principles. The major courses provide a strong background in the biological sciences for students transferring to four-year institutions who are interested in careers such as agriculture, health, research, and teaching. Prerequisite courses for nursing and other allied health programs are also offered. For detailed requirements for individual four-year institutions, students should contact the transfer institution and/or meet with a counselor for specific transfer course requirements in their major. Students can also access major and transfer information for California State Universities and University of California at www.assist.org.
