  • Objectives
    Biology is the study of life from the molecular to a global perspective. It is the science that studies living organisms, including their structure, function, growth, origin, evolution and distribution. This is an exciting and dynamic area of study. As a graduate of the two-year long Associate of Science Degree in Biology program, you'll have successfully completed a well-rounded two-year slate of studies, and you’ll be ready to meet new challenges in employment or further education— you’ll also have demonstrated both the commitment and competence necessary for success in post-secondary academics and in the professional workforce.
