Biology (AST)

Program Code: AS.TBIOLOGY

Are you interested in better understanding how life works? Biology is the study of living and once-living organisms, and an understanding of biological principles can be applied to a wide range of fields such as bioinformatics, ecology, education, marine biology, medicine, molecular biology, veterinary medicine, and more. Biology majors develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills that allow them to ask questions that lead to a better understanding of the natural world. As part of the life, physical, and social science occupations, the Bureau of Labor Statistics anticipates continued job market growth with median annual wages greater than $60,000.

The Biology Major Transfer Map (MTM) outlines Oregon community colleges coursework to complete in order to transfer seamlessly to any Oregon four-year public university to earn a bachelor of science (B.S.) in biology. The Biology MTM is intended for students who know they want to transfer and earn a B.S. in biology, but who are unsure of their intended transfer destination. Students should work with an advisor to ensure they properly fulfill the requirements of this Biology MTM.
