Biological Sciences Transfer

biological sciences

The Biological Sciences transfer program provides the foundation courses needed to transfer into four-year science-related programs in fields such as biological sciences, environmental sciences, medicine, microbiology, and pharmacy. The Biological Sciences Transfer curriculum leads to the Associate of Science degree, and meets the Transfer Module requirements for transfer to Ohio state colleges and universities. See an academic advisor for more information.

Goals

Graduates of the biological sciences program will be able to:

  • Transfer to four-year bachelor's degree programs in biological sciences with junior status.
  • Demonstrate knowledge and understanding regarding the structure and function of cells, the molecular basis of hereditary, biological evolution, interdependence among organisms, energy and the organization of living things and the behavior of organisms.
  • Construct full-scale scientific investigations; formulate the questions to be answered; design approaches that incorporate appropriate variables and controls; implement solutions; collect and record qualitative and quantitative data.
  • Demonstrate the ability to problem solve, think critically, and communicate effectively using both written and oral form.
  • Develop a working knowledge of the relationship among sciences and society.

Skills

Upon completion the student will be proficient in microscopy, electrophoresis, animal dissection, cell fractionation, analization of soil, water, and air samples.

Careers

The Biological Sciences Transfer program may offer a promising career in a field such as biology, botany, ecology, zoology, pharmacology, microbiology, and medicine. Students can expect a competitive course load to prepare them to transfer to a four-year college. The Biological Science faculty anticipates students to be hard working and highly motivated and will assist students in reaching their goals. Recent graduates have transferred to four year colleges and accepted job offers as laboratory technicians and sanitarians. The advantages of the program include low faculty to student ratio, hands-on training, easy accessibility to faculty members, updated science facilities, and affordable tuition. Trips include: The Wilds, The Columbus Zoo, and Dawes Arboretum.
