WHY Choose Microbiology?
The world we live in is filled with microscopic organisms too small to be seen by the unaided eye. Discover the roles and effects – both good and bad – of bacteria, protozoa, viruses, and certain algae and fungi, and how microbiology has helped us to control or kill the bad microbes and make maximum use of good microbes.
WHAT WILL I EXPERIENCE?
- Explore the world of microorganisms and the impacts of microbes in the environment, including the causes of infectious diseases
- Utilize microscopes and conduct laboratory experiments
- Interact with caring and knowledgeable faculty and staff
- Understand the processes and skills to conduct biological science research
WHAT OPPORTUNITIES MIGHT IT LEAD TO?
An associate of science degree in microbiology can lead to a variety of employment opportunities in education, government, medicine, and research. It is also the foundation for four-year college studies in the biological sciences.
