AAS Degree in Biotechnology and Molecular Biosciences - Academic Planning
(Two Year Plan for 2012-2013 degree requirements)

Below is a semester-by-semester plan for completing the AAS degree in biotechnology. Of course not all students will follow this plan exactly. Depending on your background and prior course work, you and your academic advisor will need to adjust this plan to fit your needs. However, please do keep in mind that some courses are only offered one semester a year (noted with an *), and that some courses within the program are sequential.

The courses shown in orange meet general studies (GS) requirements and may be sequenced in a variety of other ways than is shown here. Also, some courses have been shown with two different options to allow for some flexibility in student scheduling. (Note: All options for a particular course are the same color).
