Moraine Valley's Biological Sciences program is centered around the study of life and living organisms. The Associate in Science (A.S.) Degree in biology is designed for students wishing to transfer to a four-year institution. The curriculum will prepare students to work professionally in areas centered around biology.

Starting at Moraine Valley you will get your general education courses and interest-specific electives to pursue one of the four associate degree paths, allowing you to transfer to the four-year school of your choice.

These classes are largely the same courses you would complete in the first two years at a four-year school, but by completing them at Moraine Valley, you will save a significant amount of money on the cost of tuition and may be eligible for transfer student scholarships.
