About the Program

Biology career options include a choice of dozens of intriguing specialties. One can concentrate on microbiology and investigate viruses, bacteria, or molds. One can focus on cytology and study cells or histology and delve into the structure of animal and vegetable tissue. Ichthyology, parasitology, embryology, genetics, ecology, and biochemistry are a few of the other choices in the field. Emerging areas of emphasis include the concern for the environment and allied health professions.

Transfer
Students planning to transfer to a four-year institution should complete the lower division major requirements and general education pattern for the appropriate transfer institution and major. Exact major requirements for UC and CSU institutions can be found on www.assist.org. Please see a counselor for more information as curriculum requirements may vary among transfer universities.

A.S. in Biology
While students may take classes at both campuses, courses required for the major are offered at the Kentfield Campus. Please note: Students are required to complete English 150 for the Associate degree. All students should consult a counselor.
