The Biology Pre-Professional Science Transfer Program is ideal for those working as a physician’s assistant or students who are interested in pre-chiropractic, physical therapy or occupational therapy training.
The curriculum parallels the first two years of a baccalaureate degree in biology.
Graduates of the program will be able to:
- Explain the basic terminology and integrate biological concepts with emphasis on human structure and function.
- Demonstrate competence in basic laboratory skills including lab safety, following protocols, and using lab instrumentation.
- Demonstrate the process of scientific inquiry by formulating hypotheses, designing experiments, recording data, analyzing data, and making valid conclusions.
- Recognize the impact of biological research and technology on society.
A passing score on the College’s mathematics placement test for both Algebra I and Algebra II or MAT-013 and MAT-014 is required for all biology majors. In addition, a high school laboratory biology course with a minimum grade of “C” or BIO-010 and a high school laboratory chemistry or CHM-010 with a minimum grade of “C” are also required.
