Folsom Lake College’s Biology program offers courses that satisfy general education requirements in Life Sciences. Some courses are prerequisites for a degree in the Environmental Sciences or the health professions. In addition, the program helps prepare students for transfer opportunities to four-year programs in biological sciences, nursing, physical therapy, and programs leading to careers in teaching, medicine, dentistry, and veterinary medicine. All programs seek to develop critical thinking skills while fostering a lasting appreciation of biology. Students planning to continue for a four-year degree should consult the lower division requirements of the transfer program of the university to which they plan to attend.
Some career options may require more than two years of college study. Classes beyond the associate degree may be required to fulfill some career options or for preparation for transfer to a university program.
