Biology Transfer Track

Biologists are employed in a wide variety of fields including research, teaching, industry, governmental agencies, consulting firms in environmental work, health, and wildlife. Some positions are open to holders of the bachelors degree, but most opportunities exist at the masters and doctoral levels of preparation. Most biologists need a broad background in the natural sciences, mathematics, and communication skills.

Some positions are open to holders of the bachelors degree, but most opportunities exist at the masters and doctoral levels of preparation. Most biologists need a broad background in the natural sciences, mathematics, and communication skills.


Students may prepare themselves for transfer in nearly any biology-related field. The biology department at The University of Montana Missoula offers the following options: Biology Education, Cellular and Molecular Biology, Ecology and Organismal Biology, Field Ecology, Ecology for Teacher Preparation in General Science, Human Biological Sciences, and Natural History. The Ecology and Organismal Biology and the Human Biological Sciences curriculums each have options of one or two years of chemistry.

The Biological Sciences options at MSU-Bozeman include Ecology and Evolution, Biomedical Sciences, Biology Education, Fish and Wildlife Management, Animal Sciences, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Cell Biology and Neurosciences, Environmental Sciences, Microbiology, Plant Sciences, and Natural Resources and Ecology. The intent of thistransfer track is to generally prepare students for biology-related programs for Montana universitiesmost other four-year institutions.
