Program Summary

The Hill College Biology Department supports the mission of the College by providing biology courses for Associate's of Arts and Associate's of Science degrees, pre-allied health, holistic nutrition and wellness, and education programs. We teach freshman and sophomore level biology courses for transfer to universities in pre-medical, pre-veterinary, pre-dental programs, advanced nutrition, or for either science or non-science baccalaureate degree majors. Students interested in pre-nursing and other allied health programs may take our two-semester sequence in Human Anatomy and Physiology as well as Microbiology courses. Students interested in holistic nutrition, herbalism, and wellness coaching may pursue our holistic wellness pathway degree option, or as a stand-alone program. Students who will become teachers may be interested in several of the biology courses we offer. The biology faculty has a variety of interests from the allied health sciences to field biology and ecology and all teach courses that are well suited to their interests and experiences. Through lab activities, field trips, and other educational experiences, the faculty strives to fuel curiosity about nature in our students.
