Students planning to major in Biology, Botany, Zoology, Ecology, Microbiology, Anatomy, Physiology, Forestry, Wildlife Management, Natural Resources, Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Medicine, Optometry, and Pharmacy should complete the AA-T courses. Regardless of the specific area of concentration in Biology (e.g., medicine, ecology, genetics) these courses are required. The AA-T courses for Biology are intended to provide a solid foundation for the student who wishes to pursue further study at the baccalaureate level and for some graduate level programs, or enter a preprofessional or professional program in a health-related field. In addition to the AA-T courses for the Biology major, students should refer to the requirements of prospective institutions or seek advice from a member of the biology faculty or a counselor before choosing electives.
