Degree and Certificate Programs

Biological Sciences A.S.
In order to meet the growing demands for biological and health science training, this program will prepare students for continuation of their education in a biological sciences discipline and ultimately pursue a related career.

Biotechnology A.S.
Recognizing the growing need for individuals skilled in techniques of biotechnology, this program offers a curriculum designed to address the interdisciplinary nature of this field.

Biotechnology Certificate
The program is designed to offer the advanced biology student specialized training in applied techniques of cell culture, immunology, analytical chemistry, molecular biology, biological imaging and analytical cytology. It also serves to provide an opportunity for those individuals with a science background to receive advanced training in biotechnology.

Environmental Science A.S.
The program is designed to prepare students to continue their education in an environmental discipline and ultimately pursue a related career.

Physical Sciences A.S.
This program is intended to provide a unique curriculum for students who wish to pursue advanced education in chemistry, physics or earth science. The curriculum offers core courses in the physical sciences, as well as additional electives that meet general education requirements for the liberal arts, in preparation for transfer to a four-year school.

The Chemistry track provides students with the foundation needed for transfer to four-year institutions and complete bachelor's programs in chemistry. It will give students an excellent background in their preparation for further advanced study in chemistry, as well as their use of chemistry in a future career path including chemistry, biochemistry, pharmaceutical research and production.

The Physics track provides students with the foundation needed for transfer to four-year institutions and complete a bachelor's program in physics. It will give students an excellent background in their preparation for further advanced study in physics, as well as their use of physics in a future career path including physics, astronomy, atmospheric science or meteorology.

The Earth Science track provides students with the foundation needed for transfer to four-year institutions and complete a bachelor's program in earth science. It will give students an excellent background in their preparation for further advanced study in earth science, as well as their use of earth science in a future career path including geology, hydrogeology, marine biology, meteorology, astronomy and oceanography.
