(Biotechnology, Forensics, Genetics, and Microbiology)
A Two-Year Program Leading to the A.S. Degree
The Molecular and Laboratory Biology Concentration provides students with fundamental knowledge and laboratory skills in biotechnology, genetics, forensics, and microbiology. The primary objectives of the program are to broadly educate students for positions in these molecular and laboratory-based industries and to prepare students for graduate and professional study in biological sciences. The strong life and physical sciences foundation of the curriculum involves extensive laboratory and research experience. Students are exposed to current problems in the biological sciences, the diverse social issues relating to these problems, and the role that molecular and laboratory biology can play in solving them.
