    General Education Requirements

    Biology is the study of life, of plants and animals, and their relationships in and to their environments. The transfer program in biology at Williston State College provides the fundamentals for students pursuing a career in any of the biological sciences.

    The curriculum outlined below is based on most common baccalaureate program requirements.  Students may earn an Associate's degree in Liberal Arts at WSC, but must transfer to a baccalaureate campus to complete a Bachelor's degree in Biology.
