"There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved." ---Charles Darwin

The Biological Sciences Department offers a variety of courses to satisfy the needs of Chabot College students. We offer courses in:

  • Anatomy & Physiology
  • Botany
  • Cell Biology
  • Ecology
  • Environmental Science
  • Genetics
  • Microbiology
  • Public Health

All of our courses satisfy natural science requirements for various degrees across Chabot College and are easily transferred to other institutions. Our courses prepare students to apply to health professional programs to apply to health professional programs, to transfer to a four-year institution to study a biological science, or to complete their natural science general education requirement.

The Biological Sciences faculty and staff are dedicated to student success and enrichment by serving as instructional support and informational resources to students as well as advisors for related clubs and programs.

Students who have matriculated through our programs will be exposed to the scientific method, gain an appreciation for the environment, understand health issues in society, and become aware of the roles of science in our lives. Our courses will also help them become better "consumers" of scientific information and increase awareness of their personal health.
