Career Options

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.
