Why study biology?
Students wishing to enter careers in many life science and health professions careers will get their start in our biology courses. Agriculture and agriculture technology, basic research, medial/pharmaceutical research, science writing, medicine, therapeutics, kinesiology, sustainability and environmental biology, and many other careers will have their roots in a basic understanding of biology.
Parkland's course offerings include anatomy and other biological science courses for health professions and pre-professional medicine students. Some classes feature field trips to nearby prairies and ecosystems, while another takes students on a two-week Caribbean exploration. Other biology classes cover evolution, nutrition, microbiology, and the new field of biotechnology. All courses are laboratory-based, and many are offered online or during evening hours.
At Parkland, you'll have the advantage of small class sizes, taught by master faculty—never teaching assistants. Your success is our priority.
Parkland College offers a variety of biology classes to prepare you for a transfer degree or to fulfill general education requirements.
