Associate in Science in Biology for Transfer Antelope Valley College
Biology is the scientific study of life through the observation of structure, function, reproduction, growth, origin, evolution, and behaviour of living organisms and their relation to each other and their environment. Biologists have deepened our understanding of processes and interactions on all levels of biological organization from elucidating cellular processes to fight cancer in assessing interactions in communities that might help prevent the extinction of species. Studying biology provides a background for students to evaluate and understand new discoveries and to make informed decisions about the use of scientific knowledge to benefit all living organisms.
The AS-T in Biology is designed to prepare students for transfer to a baccalaureate degree program in biology, particularly at the California State University.
The Associate of Science in Biology for Transfer (AS-T) prepares the student for upper-division biology courses, including general biology, cell or molecular biology, organism biology, marine biology, botany, zoology, ecology, evolution, genetics, anatomy, physiology, microbiology, and agricultural sciences.
