Biology Department

Biology is the study of living organisms

Through the use of the scientific method, biologists seek to understand the unity and diversity of life. By understanding biological processes, we can make intelligent decisions regarding our environment, our health and our place in the ecosystem.

A solid background in the life sciences is required for many careers, including working in the allied health professions, agriculture, food service, parks and recreation, and education. Occupations requiring scientific and technological competency will be increasingly available in the future.

We offer courses at Aptos as well as Watsonville campuses.
