Biology

Courses offered in the Biology Department at Odessa College are directed toward three objectives. The first objective provides non-science majors with scientific information and concepts about the living world to help them become well-rounded citizens. Second, our courses provide students majoring in biological sciences with a broad and sound foundation for advanced study at an upper-level institution or a professional school. The third objective is directed to students looking to gain skills and course credits necessary for entry into various allied health programs such as nursing, physical therapist assistant, radiologic technology, occupational therapy and physician assistant. This objective also focuses on acceptance into medical, dental, veterinary and pharmaceutical schools. Odessa College, in cooperation with Texas A&M University, provides a unique opportunity for students seeking medical degrees. This agreement guarantees acceptance into the Biomedical Science program at Texas A&M to every Odessa College student who complete two years of specified course work. Students graduating from the Biomedical Science program have a high rate of acceptance into medical, dental, veterinary and pharmacy schools.
