Exploring the Biological World

Picture of Science Building

The LMC biology department offers courses that satisfy a wide range of major and non-major requirements. We offer general education courses for transfer and AA degrees, as well as pre-nursing classes for students interested in applying to RN or LVN programs.  We also offer lower division biology majors courses required for students interested in medicine and biology research.  
We are pleased to offer all of our courses in the new LMC science building equipped with state-of-the-art classroom presentation and learning tools and excellent lab facilities.  We are even more pleased to have a dedicated and talented teaching and support staff who consistently receive great praise and excellent evaluations from our students.
