This plan of study was developed as a guideline for students who plan to transfer to an Alabama public four-year institution and pursue a degree in Biology. It is also appropriate for those seeking a degree in secondary education with a biology concentration. Students who plan to transfer to an out-of-state or private institution should consult that institution and plan their program of study in consultation with biology faculty advisors and/or counselors. Some courses in this program may not be available at all College locations. Upon completion of courses listed below, the transcript will reflect either an AA or AS degree without reference to the specific program of study.
* Must complete a 6-semester-hour sequence in Literature or History.
* For Humanities, Social/Behavioral Sciences and Area V Electives: Some 4-year institutions require a specific course or courses in the indicated areas. Check the Alabama Transfers Guide and Area V page of your intended transfer institution for additional guidance. Transfer credits may not exceed 50% of those required for the 4-year degree.
* ORI 101 or 105, CIS 146: Courses are not included in the Alabama Transfers Guide but are applicable toward the associate degree.
