Curriculum Guides 2004-2005
(Fall 2004, Spring 2005, Summer 2005)

These curriculum guides are based on the Ohlone College 2004-2005 degree requirements. Students who will be graduating using a different catalog for their degree requirements should see a counselor and/or refer to the appropriate Ohlone College Catalog (view Ohlone's Catalog Rights Policy). All students are encouraged to meet with a counselor to review degree requirements and/or have questions answered.

AS Degree: Transfer Major

The Associate of Science Transfer Degree in Biology offered by Ohlone College is designed to prepare students for studying the Biological Sciences at most universities. The core courses required in the AS Degree in Biology will fulfill the lower division requirements for most campuses of the UC and CSU systems. This program will enable students to develop a strong foundation in the life sciences, physical sciences, and mathematics. Furthermore, the theoretical knowledge and laboratory skills acquired by students in this program will also enhance their success with obtaining entry-level jobs that require two years of college-level science and math.

Since some curriculum requirements may vary among transfer universities, it is imperative that students entering Ohlone's AS degree program in Biology meet with a counselor at the start of their academic work. Counselors will assist students in preparing a Student Education Plan that will prepare them to transfer to the university of their choice. Counselors will also advise students on the general education plan that best prepares them for future transfer.
