The Associate of Science (Biology) is a two-year program for students who plan to transfer to the university to complete a B.S. degree in biology, genetics, microbiology, or biotechnology. The B.S. degree in biology prepares graduates to continue their education in professional (dental, medical, pharmacy, physical therapy, optometry, veterinary) or graduate programs or to enter the workforce as research scientists in university or industrial laboratories, biological consultants, or as scientists in local, state, or federal agencies.
The Tennessee Transfer Pathway (TTP) degree is designed to create a smooth transition to all public universities offering a Baccalaureate degree in this major by guaranteeing the transferability of all courses. For transfer to other four-year institutions, contact an advisor at the senior institution. Note: There are to be no course substitutions in this program.
All students graduating with a degree from VSCC are required to take the Educational Testing Service Proficiency Profile (ETSP) to meet graduation requirements. More information can be found at http://www.volstate.edu/Testing/Services.php.
