Biological sciences are the basic foundation for many professions. Upper-division requirements at the transfer institution will determine the area of specialization. Students should work with a faculty advisor to develop a specific program.
Following completion of a Bachelor of Arts or Science Degree at a four-year institution of the student's choice, several avenues of employment or advancement are open. A few of these are:
- Food Processing
- Commercial Fisheries
- Graduate School
- State and Federal Wildlife agencies
- Science teaching at elementary or secondary level
- Environmental Sciences
- Transfer into professional health programs (medical, dental, pharmacy, physical therapy or optometry)
- Veterinary/Animal Science
