Studying for an associate degree in biology is a great way to learn about the natural sciences without the time commitment required for a bachelor’s degree. It takes about two years to complete an associate’s degree while studying full time, and many schools offer part-time options and night classes for nontraditional students who have employment or family commitments.

What is an associate degree in biology? Students studying for this degree learn the fundamentals of human biology and natural biology in order to prepare for the workforce or for a subsequent bachelor’s degree in biochemistry, botany, environmental and wildlife management, or medicine. Students typically learn how to identify and label different types of cells and how the human genome functions. They may be taught the basics of nutrition and how the body processes vitamins and minerals.

By learning about the scientific method, students may obtain the skills to carry out lab experiments and to accurately record and evaluate data. They also often gain team work and problem solving experience, which are valuable assets as students prepare to seek out employment opportunities with industry professionals.

The cost of an associate degree in biology varies depending on the country and the institution. Prospective students can learn about the costs involved by scheduling a meeting with an admission counselor.

Graduates often find career opportunities in a wide variety of natural science industries. Many work as lab technicians, collecting samples, performing tests, maintaining equipment and writing reports. They do this for medical and health care laboratories or for federal and state governments at conservation sites and wildlife reserves. Whether it’s working to develop a cure for diseases as a researcher or saving an endangered species of plant as a conservationist, a degree in biology is an opportunity to specialize in a fascinating scientific field that has a demand for qualified workers.

Universities and community colleges often offer easy enrollment for an associate degree, with flexible scheduling options and payment plans. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
