Natural and Physical Science Course Descriptions
Courses offered in biology prepare students for employment, research, and advanced training in biological sciences; such as zoology, botany, mycology and microbiology and related sub areas. They also provide background for students entering pre-professional studies of medicine, dentistry, optometry, physical therapy, nutrition, pharmacy, and related health science areas. Students are also prepared to enter into the applied biological fields such as animal and plant science, agronomy, food science, and veterinary medicine; as well as related societal areas of forensic science, mortuary science and funeral service. Regardless of their interests, biology students are encouraged to earn college internship credit for experiences in the specialized area of their choice.
