The biological science degree is a hands-on program designed to prepare you to excel in various scientific laboratories or to continue your education in a number of science or pre-professional fields. The program provides a foundation in biology, chemistry, and mathematics as well as a common core of general education courses.
Biological science is a flexible program that can be tailored to fit the educational requirements of a variety of laboratory-related occupations and transfer opportunities.
Alfred State biological science graduates may enter directly into the forensic science technology BS, health sciences BS, the interdisciplinary studies BTech, or the technology management BBA degree program.
The program also enables graduates to transfer to four-year programs in biology and chemistry as well as programs such as sports medicine, medical technology, ultrasound technology, and pre-professional programs (medicine, veterinary, dentistry, and pharmacy).
Employment and continuing education rate of 100 percent – 25 percent are employed; 75 percent continued their education.
Required: Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, Biology, Chemistry
