Life Sciences : AS-T in Biology : Home



The Associate in Science in Biology for Transfer degree is appropriate for all students who want to pursue a career in the life sciences and allied health professions such as medicine, dentistry and pharmacy.  In the 21st century, no field can compare to the biological sciences in terms of major discoveries that directly affect society and individuals.  The disciplines are endless and new ones arise annually: genetic engineering, forensics, biochemistry, veterinary medicine, pathology, botany, zoology, marine biology, forestry, microbiology, conservation biology, ecology, environmental studies, and bioinformatics. The Associate in Science in Biology for Transfer is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor’s degree in Biology or a similar major at a CSU campus. Students completing this degree are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major.
