At Jackson State, our knowledgeable biology faculty and staff will prepare you for a career in the biological or health sciences.  Some of our students choose to pursue an Associates of Science degree in Biology.  A diversity of faculty interests ensure students have proper mentoring and advisement on their careers in Biology.  An Associates of Science in Biology allows our students to continue their education in fields of cell/molecular biology, ecology/field sciences, or microbiology at a four year institution.  Others may choose careers in a medical field such as dentistry, physical therapy, pharmacy, or any number of specialized careers in medicine.  For a listing of Tennessee Board of Regents four year institutions, see links below.

In addition to training future biologists, our Biology faculty educate Nursing and Health Sciences students in the subject of Human Anatomy and Physiology.  We are committed to a student’s full understanding of the human body and acknowledge it to be crucial for student success.
