Biology Curriculum


This recommended transfer program for biological sciences students meets the requirements for an associate in science degree and recommendations of the Illinois Articulation Initiative biological sciences major panel. Students should decide the specialization within the biological sciences major as early as possible, preferably by the beginning of the sophomore year. Students are strongly encouraged to complete an associate in science degree prior to transfer. Requirements for schools vary. Students should check individual school requirements before completing the curriculum as outlined.
