YOUR PATH TO A BACHELOR'S DEGREE

Delaware Tech has established agreements with four-year colleges and universities that connect Delaware Tech associate degree programs with bachelor's degree programs to create smooth transfer opportunities for you. These Connected Degree programs enable you to complete your associate degree and then transfer to a four-year degree program as a junior.

THE CONNECTED DEGREE 2 + 2 CURRICULUM

Delaware Tech's Associate Degree program in Biotechnology: Biological Sciences Option offers students a theoretical and practical education in various aspects of biology and chemistry that can be applied to diverse careers in the medical, environmental, industrial, and agricultural fields. Standard techniques used in science laboratories are covered, and special emphasis is placed on science and math instruction to prepare students for upper-level course work.

Wesley College's Biology program provides students with the requisite knowledge in biology and chemistry necessary for the student to pursue a career in industry, education, scientific research, or to enter a graduate or professional medical program. This training involves understanding and exemplifying investigative methods and techniques, critical analysis, writing and communicative skills and the quest to relate existing knowledge to new and challenging scientific situations. Students are encouraged to experience the diversity of science and to explore the interaction between scientific discovery and application to current world problems.
