Program Description

Description

Biological sciences encompasses a wide range of fields from cell and molecular biology to ecology to organismal biology.

HFC offers a wide range of courses in Biological Sciences. Students may take a few courses in biology to satisfy the requirements for a program of study at HFC or choose from advanced courses to begin their studies toward a Bachelor's degree in a field of biology, which they can complete at a college or university;

Students who wish to pursue a career in biological sciences, or a professional career in medicine, veterinary science, dentistry, or advanced graduate work should consider this field.

Students who wish to transfer to a four year school to major in a field of biology (such as ecology, molecular biology, neuroscience, marine biology, or biology education) should follow the Biology Associate in Science degree. This program is set up to allow students great flexibility in planning their course of study at HFC. Since the requirements for a Bachelor's degree in Biology vary depending on the field of biology, as well as on the university, students should consult with an academic advisor familiar with the requirements of the schools to which they wish to transfer.
