​When you think of life on earth, your first thoughts are probably about familiar animals, your pet dog or cat, the bird you see in the tree outside your window. But that is really only a small sample of all the types of life on our planet, which include plants, bacteria, fungi, and animals in a vast array of body forms and types. Biology is the study of life, individual organisms, their communities, and the systems, cells, and processes that make up living matter. With an Associate in Science from City Colleges of Chicago you can transfer to a four-year college as a junior, obtain your bachelor’s degree and work in fields like biochemistry, genetics, marine biology, zoology, ecology and much more.
