Completion of the following courses will prepare the student for transfer into a biology program at a baccalaureate institution. The biology career options that are available include, but are not limited to, the following: Biology, Biology Teaching, Biomedical Science, Fish and Wildlife Management, Ecology, and Environmental Science. If the student intends to complete a bachelor’s degree in biology education (for high school teaching) he/she would be advised to take secondary education courses as well (see Education, Secondary in this section). Students planning on entering a program in pre-medicine, pre-optometry, or pre-dental could also benefit from the curriculum.
The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science are transfer degrees and are awarded without designation of major, but do follow curriculum transfer plans. These degrees indicate that a student has completed a course of study that is essentially equivalent to the first two years of a baccalaureate degree.
PLEASE NOTE: When selecting courses, students should consult the catalog of the school to which they intend to transfer. They should then work with their DCC advisor to assure that the proper classes are being taken at DCC. Together, the student and the advisor will select courses that will fit into the program at the transfer institution.
