Return to All Programs of Study by Division and Degree Type Return to: All Programs of Study by Division and Degree Type

Biotechnology is a rapidly expanding field of academic research and industry. Biotechnology industries are developing new approaches to treating diseases, finding new pharmaceutical agents, developing renewable energy sources, and improving food production. Students who are interested in entering this field will find many challenging career opportunities and the potential to develop new products aimed at solving some of society’s urgent problems. To prepare for careers in Biotechnology students need to have a foundation in biology, microbiology, chemistry, and mathematics.

The Associate of Science (AS) degree requires 60 credits at FVCC, and the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree at Montana University System (MUS) colleges and universities requires 120 credits. FVCC students can usually earn as many as 75-85 credits in preparation for many transfer majors, thus reducing the number of credits required for the BS degree at MUS schools. Also, by earning the AS degree from FVCC, students will have satisfied the lower division General Education Core (see General Education Requirements  for requirements) for all MUS institutions and will not be required to meet additional lower division general education core requirements upon transfer. The suggested course load in AS programs is rigorous and is recommended for only the most prepared students. A more moderate semester credit load can be achieved by taking general education core courses during summer terms or completing one or two additional semesters at FVCC before transfer.

The information on all transfer programs is subject to change. Students should see their advisor to explore other possibilities not specifically listed in the program.
