Students can earn a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), Bachelor of Science (B.S.), or Bachelor of Science with Teaching Certification in Biology at Texas A&M University-San Antonio. Students entering with an Associate’s degree or transfer students who have taken the prerequisite entry level science classes (e.g., introductory biology, plus chemistry or physics) can earn a B.A. or B.S. degree in General Biology in approximately two years.
