Academic Transfer, A.S., Biotechnology Concentration


Lincoln

The Biotechnology concentration provides students with a background in biology and chemistry, as well as a working knowledge of biotechnology by focusing on laboratory protocols in a regulated environment. Coursework leads to an Associate of Science degree, which prepares students for careers as technical assistants in biomedical, pharmaceutical, academic, and bioengineering laboratories. Core coursework prepares students to further their education at local four-year institutions leading to more advanced degrees. Students gain experience through a practicum.

SCC has an articulation agreement with Union College to provide a pathway for students from the Associate of Science with a Biotechnology Concentration to a Bachelor’s of Science in Biomedical Science.

  • Please contact Tracy Niday, Biotechnology Instructor, at 402-437-2341 or email TNiday@southeast.edu for more information about this agreement and SCC’s Associate of Science with a Biotechnology Concentration.

NOTE: Not all courses on this list will transfer credit to four-year colleges and universities. It is the student’s responsibility to contact an advisor at the college or university to which they plan to transfer to determine the courses that will transfer.
