Welcome to the LACC Life Sciences Department
The Life Sciences Department is composed of a diverse faculty and staff, with various cultural, educational, and professional backgrounds. Working together, our faculty enhance the curriculum by incorporating our experiences and expertise in biological and clinical fields. Many of our courses are pre-requisites for students in non-biological programs such as Kinesiology, Radiology, Pharmacology, and Nursing.
Life Sciences disciplines include Anatomy, Biology, Physiology, Microbiology, Genetics, Zoology, and Botany.
About our Classes
Students considering careers in health and medicine are required to take courses in the Biology/Anatomy discipline. Many health and allied health programs (e.g. Radiologic Technology, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy) require Anatomy and Physiology. Some programs, Nursing for example, also require Microbiology. Students in non-health care related majors can also benefit from a grounding in these areas. Additionally, understanding basic biological principles can help you live a healthier life and better understand diseases, medical treatments, and medical breakthroughs.
All LACC Life Sciences classes are UC and CSU transferable.
