This degree program is intended for students who plan to continue their education beyond the associate degree. It provides a curriculum which is broad based in the biological sciences and helps students meet the requirements for a variety of other degree programs. It is the recommended major for students planning to pursue a 4-year biology degree on the Casper College campus via the UW/CC program. It is also advised for students who desire to pursue baccalaureate and/or graduate education in the biological sciences.
