Biological Sciences

Program Overview

How can we diagnose cancer early? How does understanding how a bear hibernates help people with diabetes? If these questions pique your curiosity, consider enrolling in the Biological Sciences program. The field of biology is a broad, diverse discipline, covering study areas in genetics, cell and marine biology, microbiology, neurosciences, physiology, plant sciences, immunology, ecology, and biotechnology. Our Biological Sciences program serves as a great springboard for pursuing a career in medicine, veterinary studies, pharmacology, research, genetics counseling, farming, and urban planning — to name a few.

Our pre-med, pre-vet, pre-pharmacy, and biology and ecology science tracks are tailored to fit your educational needs so you can build a solid foundation in medicine and transfer to Arizona State University (ASU). Our challenging and comprehensive coursework includes classes in physics, organic chemistry, anatomy, computer science, and statistics.
