The Biology department at Gadsden State Community College is dedicated to meeting the individual needs of our students. Small class size allow instructors to offer personal attention which can only be afforded within the community college setting. Our faculty is derived from professionals whose experience ranges from Field Biology to Medical Technology and Nutrition. We have a combined experience of over 80 years in Biological education.
Gadsden State offers three different sequences to meet the Biological needs of our students. For those students who are going into a field of study far removed from sciences or health or for those majoring in Biology, another science, Pre-Med, or Secondary Science Education, we offer the Bio 103 and Bio 104 sequence for majors. Students interested in going into Nursing, Radiological Technology, Medical Lab Technology, or another allied health program will be directed into the Bio 103, Bio 201, Bio 202, and Bio 220 sequence. To assure proper direction into the appropriate sequence it is strongly suggested that the student seek out his or her advisor for the specific field of study in question.
Additionally, the Gadsden State Community College’s Human Gross Anatomy Lab offers a rare learning opportunity to our anatomy/physiology students of the human body. The human cadavers used in the BIO 271 course are dissected and studied extensively to gain a better knowledge of the complexities of the human body. The lab is utilized for our Human Anatomy/Physiology I & II courses for observation only.
