Biological Sciences Department
Poised to meet the scientific challenges of the 21st century, Seminole State College's biological sciences faculty keeps a close watch on new developments in the field. Seminole State was the first state college in Florida to offer courses in the emerging field of biotechnology. Faculty members are well qualified, innovative and dedicated to student success, upholding high academic standards.
The College's new state-of-the-art biology labs allow for hands-on research in all biology courses, and the program's small class sizes encourage frequent interaction between instructors and students.
Throughout the program, students receive crucial training in two of the industry's fastest growing occupations: health technology and environmental technology. Graduates are so well prepared that that they often tutor other students after transferring to a four-year college or university.
The purpose of the Department of Biological Sciences is to promote a thorough understanding of biological principles and scientific methodology; to offer a variety of courses that equip students for a complex and changing world; to provide experience with state-of-the-art technology in biological sciences; to prepare students for further study in scientific disciplines; and to encourage students to develop their critical thinking abilities.
