This program is designed for students interested in the various fields of biological sciences such as cell biology, environmental science, fish and wildlife management, forestry, genetics, and microbiology. Students majoring in biological sciences may also be interested in the following program areas: biochemistry, chemistry, pre-chiropractic, pre-dentistry, pre-medicine, pre-medical technology, pre-optometry, pre-pharmacy, and pre-veterinary medicine. The program listed below should be used as a guide since required courses vary considerably among the four-year institutions. Students planning a degree in biological sciences or one of the above fields should contact the biology department and work with a counselor or adviser to identify transfer options. A visit to the intended transfer institution by the spring of the first year is highly recommended.
