Biology is the study of living organisms, their structure, life processes, and their interactions with each other and their environment.

A major in the biological sciences is recommended for students interested in pursuing further study in biology, botany, zoology, ecology/environmental sciences, microbiology, agriculture, forestry, molecular biology, cell biology, genetics or marine biology.

This pattern also provides an excellent foundation for studies in pre-medicine, pre-dentistry and pre-veterinary medicine and may qualify students for positions as biology laboratory technicians. The sequence of courses may be taken on a full-time or a part-time basis. Some classes are offered both day and evening.
