Biology is the natural science concerned with the study of all living organisms, their structure, function, growth, origin, evolution, and distribution.  Gsquared is a co-admissions partnership between University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) and Guilford Technical Community College (GTCC).  GTCC offers the first two years of biology courses and courses in other disciplines such as chemistry, mathematics and physics for students to complete the Associate of Science degree and transfer to UNCG to complete a Bachelor of Science in Biology.

Upon successful completion of this degree, graduates will be able to:

  • ​Employ modern instrumentation and techniques.
  • Communicate scientific concepts and relevant issues effectively.
  • Apply scientific reasoning to design, conduct, and interpret experiments.
