AS-T BIOLOGY The AS-T in Biology provides a foundation in biology for students planning to transfer into a baccalaureate program in biology. Successful completion of the transfer degree guarantees the student acceptance to a California State University to pursue a baccalaureate degree in biology or a related field. Program Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of this program, students will be able to describe and demonstrate correct use of biology laboratory equipment, be well-prepared for upper division biology courses, and be well-qualified as transfer students to a four-year university biology program. Required Core: BIOL 101, 102; List A: CHEM 101, 102, MATH 103, PHYS 105 and 106 or PHYS 101 and 102; LIST B: BIOL 103 or MATH 136. Required Units for Major: 36-38 units*

HEALTH SCIENCE AA DEGREE Program Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of this program, students will be able to identify anatomical structures and describe the functions of important systems in the human body; be accepted to a nursing program ; and be well-prepared for courses in the nursing program or a 4-year university program of their choice. REQUIRED COURSES: A minimum of 14 units in one of the following options and additional 6 elective units is required. Option A: BIOL 115 or BIOL 122, 120; CHEM 110 or 120. Option B: BIOL 120, 121; CHEM 110 or 120. Electives (6 units): Choose one course from each category Category 1—Speech: SPCH 100, 101, 103. Category 2—Social Science: ANTHR 102, PSYCH 101, SOC 101.

BIOLOGICAL SCIENCE AS DEGREE The AS degree in Biological Sciences provides a strong foundation for transfer to a 4 year university in order to complete a BS in Biology or related fields. It may also provide appropriate training for employment in biological laboratories, museums, and/or educational outreach. Students may petition to use IGETC for STEM majors in place of our local GE requirements. Students must complete all required core courses for a total of 39 units. Program Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of this program, students will be able to describe and demonstrate correct use of laboratory equipment; be well-prepared for upper-division biology courses; and be well-qualified as transfer students to a 4 year university biology program. REQUIRED COURSES: BIOL 101, 102; CHEM 101, 102, 105, 106; MATH 103, 104.
