Biology is the study of living things. Are you fascinated with how various organisms and life forms exist and adapt within our world? South's Biology program provides a strong foundation in both Biology and laboratory science. While jobs are available as an undergraduate Biology student, most students continue on to graduate or professional school to advance their studies. Many pre-medicine, pre-pharmacy, and pre-dental students choose Biology as their undergraduate major.


South offers many different types of Biology geared towards many types of students. For the non-science major we offer a BIOL& 100 - Introduction to Biology course. For those students pursuing careers in Nursing and other Health-related fields, we offer the Anatomy and Physiology series and Microbiology in many different formats (i.e. online, evening, hybrid, day). For those students pursuing advanced study in the sciences we offer the year-long Biology series and electives.
