Biological Sciences Associate of Science (AS)
Locations: Fergus Falls, Moorhead
This degree is designed for students interested in the various fields of biological sciences such as cell biology, bioengineering, environmental science, fish and wildlife management, forestry, genetics and microbiology. Students majoring in biological sciences may also be interested in the following program areas: biochemistry, chemistry, pre-chiropractic, pre-dentistry, pre-medicine, pre-medical technology, pre-optometry, pre-pharmacy and pre-veterinary medicine. The curriculum should be used as a guide since required courses vary considerably among four-year institutions and professional schools. Students planning a degree in biological sciences or one of the above fields should contact the biology department and work with an adviser. A visit to the intended transfer institution by the spring of the first year is highly recommended.
M State's Biological Sciences program has articulation agreements with Bemidji State University and Minnesota State University Moorhead. Graduates from M State's Biological Sciences AS program can transfer seamlessly into BSU's bachelor degree programs in Biology and MSUM's bachelor degree programs in Biology and Biology: Emphasis in Ecology and Evolutionay Biology.
Articulation agreements ensure that students completing specified coursework or degree programs at M State will transfer into designated programs at partner universities/colleges per the terms of the agreement. This cooperative effort eliminates or minimizes the questions and confusion that sometimes accompany transfer and allows our students to be confident that their degree from M State will satisfy a substantive portion of the completion requirements for the bachelor's degree at the university/college they will be attending.
