Biological Sciences is an exciting and rapidly changing field of study. The study of living things has undergone tremendous expansion in recent years. The Biological Sciences program provides an ideal and flexible path for students to begin their educational journey in this field. The program emphasizes the practical knowledge and skills required for employment and for continuing education in the Biological Sciences.

“For me, KVCC is close to home, and the price is right. I also love the modern labs, and how much hands-on time I have in my biology class." "I chose KVCC because of the small classes, and the flexible scheduling options. The cost was also very reasonable.”
