Prerequisite Courses for the Major, Biology- Pre-Professional
Subplan Code: SCI-BIO
CIP: 1192401010

The Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree is designed for transfer to an upper-division public college or university in the State of Florida. Students will complete the A.A. General degree, including common program prerequisites for their program of choice.

The following sample courses are listed for illustrative purposes only, are based on the State of Florida common prerequisites manual and university transfer counseling manuals, and are subject to change without warning. Many universities have unique additional requirements for entry to the major. Students must work with Student Affairs advisors, counselors or specialists to make sure required courses are taken and entry requirements are met for the college/university program of their choice.

All students must consult with their Student Affairs advisors to ensure that their degree programs contain the appropriate courses and prerequisites for their selected baccalaureate degree program.

Students may also refer to the online A.A. Transfer Evaluation through www.FLVC.org for more information on their transfer program of choice.

Sample Courses
Completion of the A.A. General degree to include the following prerequisite courses for the major:
AvailableBSC1010CGeneral Biology I
This course is primarily for science majors or students with a strong biology background. It is a study of the molecular and cellular composition and function of living organisms. Emphasis will be given to structure, chemical metabolism and genetic mechanisms. Laboratory illustrates basic biological principles. Lab fee required.
4
AvailableBSC1011CGeneral Biology II
