Now is the perfect time to begin developing your path to future success in the field of biology or physical sciences such as chemistry. Employment of biological scientists is projected to grow much faster than the average. As biotechnological research and development continue to spearhead job growth for the future, there are exciting opportunities for biologists and chemists today and tomorrow. These scientists have the flexibility to work in a wide range of disciplines such as medicine and pharmaceuticals, agriculture, and environmental science.

While a PhD is usually necessary for independent research, a bachelorís or masterís degree is sufficient for scores of jobs in applied research, product development, management, or inspection. Many of these positions are available with a bachelorís degree in biological or physical sciences to enter medical, dental, veterinary, or other health vocations.

This associate of arts transfer option is designed for part- and full-time students with a specific academic and/or professional interest in the areas of biology, botany, zoology, anatomy and physiology, ecology, microbiology, and genetics. This option introduces the discipline within the context of allied subject areas, preparing students for specific concentration at a four-year Maryland state college or university.
