Are you fascinated with living things and the processes that help them grow and thrive? If you’re interested in studying how humans are impacting the natural world and how closely linked we are to our environment, an associate degree in biology is an ideal starting point for your college education.
Biology is a natural science that studies life, which seems simple but actually covers a vast amount of subject areas, including biochemistry, cellular structure, anatomy and ecosystems, to name a few. Because living things are constantly in flux and often behave unpredictably, biology is a more fluid discipline than other areas of science that rely more upon established laws and principles. This doesn’t make biology any less scientific than physics or chemistry, however. The flexibility inherent in biological processes leads to many interesting questions and studies, with fascinating and at times surprising results.
By earning a biology degree at Aims, you can go on to earn your bachelor’s while paying less in tuition. Thanks to a statewide agreement between community colleges and universities, when you earn your biology associate degree at Aims, you can transfer to any participating four-year public university in Colorado as a junior and earn your bachelor’s degree in biology. Taking your general education degree requirements at Aims instead of a four-year institution can save you considerable cost.
At Aims, your instructors, Pathway Advisors and coaches at the Aims Transitions Center will work together to guide you through the transfer process.
