CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Molecular Biotechnology

Associate in Applied Science Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0212  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

The Biotechnology program is a laboratory-intensive curriculum which emphasizes the wide-ranging applications of recombinant DNA technology (genetic engineering) including the preparation of gene libraries, Polymerase Chain Reaction, and DNA "fingerprinting".  Graduates of this program will be able to work in many exciting areas of biotechnology, such as human genetic disease research, improvement of disease-resistance in plants, enhanced crop production, pharmaceutical research, biological cleanup of environmental pollution, or genome sequencing projects.  Near the end of the program the Science Department will make every effort to arrange for internships in university or industrial research laboratories for students who wish to gain further experience.  If you plan to transfer to a four-year school, please see an academic advisor or counselor before enrolling. Not all courses in this program transfer to all colleges. Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor before enrolling in any course.

 

PREREQUISITES
Students should see Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section for skills assessment and advising information.
