Biology Transfer Major
Biology is a branch of science that studies living organisms and their vital processes, encompassing the fields of botany, conservation, ecology, evolution, genetics, marine biology, medicine, microbiology, molecular biology, physiology and zoology. Completing this two-year transfer degree puts you on a successful track in many bachelor's degree programs in the field, and agreements with four-year colleges ensure your credits will transfer to the Regent universities.
Employers need biologists in the biotechnology industry, including pharmaceutical companies, university research laboratories, medical research centers, forensic laboratories, museums and government agencies. The degree prepares you for a four-year degree in health programs and life sciences.
