Biology Majors & Transfer

Important Announcement: All Biology courses have new rubrics and numbers starting in Fall 2015

Las Positas College students who plan to major in the Biological Sciences can complete lower-division course requirements for transfer to Biology programs at 4-year colleges or universities. Typically, students need to take our core sequence of Biology Majors courses (Biology 1A, Biology 1B, and Biology 1C). Biology 30 is recommended, but not required, for Biology 1A and 1B.

Other typical lower-division requirements for majoring in biology include chemistry, physics, and math, plus general education courses.

Las Positas offers a typical pathway for students who plan to transfer and major in the Biological Sciences. You must consult your desired transfer institutions, the Transfer Center, and/or Counseling for the most up-to-date information.
