Biotechnology and Molecular Biosciences (AAS) - Biomanufacturing Track

Program Information

The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Biotechnology and Molecular Biosciences program is designed to give entry-level laboratory technicians skills for application in academic, industrial and commercial research institutions. The exposure to an academic environment that simulates the contemporary biotechnological workplace, inclusive of analytical, critical thinking and problem-solving skills, provides the opportunity to form a strong technical foundation typically sought by employers. The successful completion of the program may also provide the educational background for those wishing to pursue a career in the pharmaceutical industry, clinical laboratory medicine, forensics or environmental testing laboratories and/or a foundation for a student wishing to continue their education at a university.

In addition to the Biomanufacturing track, the following Biotechnology program track is available at GCC:

Program Notes

You must earn a grade of C or better for all courses within the program.

The semesters in which general education courses (SB, HU, COM, and Science) are suggested are flexible and may be switched in sequence. You should consider taking one or more of these courses during the summer session in order to distribute your class load more evenly between the semesters.

A total of four (4) credits of Restricted Electives are required for this program. Some restricted electives may have prerequisites and/or corequisites that are not included in the total program credits. If you are interested in taking restricted electives that had additional requisites, you will need to adjust your academic plan to incorporate these courses, or obtain permission from your instructor to waive these requirements based on prior experience and/or training.
