Baccalaureate biological science programs are diverse. Some programs emphasize cell
and molecular biology, whereas others emphasize organismal, ecological and evolutionary
biology. Research universities offer specific programs of study, optional tracks
or specialization's within biology. Students should decide the direction or specialization
within the Biological Sciences major as early as possible, preferably by the beginning
of the sophomore year. Community and junior college students are strongly encouraged
to complete an Associate in Science (A.S.) degree prior to transfer. The advice
of both community college and university biology faculty members is encouraged prior
to selection of biology elective courses. To transfer as a junior into a baccalaureate
biological sciences program, students must complete a minimum of 60 semester credits,
including all of the prerequisite science courses listed. For maximum transferability,
students are encouraged to complete all general education, supporting science, and
biology core courses listed.
Students are advised to complete the entire 2- or 3 course introductory biological
sciences sequence at one school before transferring. Student who complete only one
course may have to repeat that course, since material may be arranged differently
by another institution.
Be sure to consult the institution you plan on transferring to for course articulations.
