Biological Sciences covers all aspects of the scientific study of life and emphasizes both the unity and diversity of living things. The structure, function, and behavior of organisms are studied at the molecular, cellular, organismal and environmental levels. The biology program serves three areas of: a broad background of studies for the biology major preparing for transfer to a four-year institution; support courses in human anatomy, human physiology, and general microbiology, which may be used to satisfy prerequisites for nursing programs and other allied-health fields; and courses in natural sciences to fulfill general education requirements. The Associate in Science Degree requires the completion of 32.0 units.
