The Biology major is designed for students who are pursuing transfer to four year programs in the biological sciences, including general biology, cell or molecular biology, organism biology, marine biology, botany, zoology, ecology, environmental sciences, evolution, genetics, anatomy, physiology, microbiology, and agricultural sciences. The major is also designed for students planning to pursue careers in dentistry, medicine, veterinary medicine, or physical therapy. It is not designed, however, to meet the needs of students interested in pursuing studies in allied health fields. Please see a counselor for assistance in choosing an appropriate major, or to begin this program.
The Computer Science major will allow students whose planned transfer major is Computer Science to earn an Associate Degree while meeting the typical lower division requirements for a Computer Science degree at a four-year institution. Upon successful completion of this program, the student will be able to: (1) Successfully pursue a bachelor's degree in computer science at a four-year institution; (2) Apply the basic and intermediate problem solving and programming skills and tools necessary to succeed in upper division computer science courses; and (3) Apply the mathematical tools necessary to succeed in upper division computer science courses.
The Associate in Arts and Associate in Science Degrees can be earned at Santa Rosa Junior College. Requirements for graduation with an Associate Degree are prescribed by the California Community College System and the Board of Trustees of Santa Rosa Junior College.
