Palomar College Learning For Success


 Welcome to the Biology Department at Palomar College in San Marcos, California

For the spring and summer 2021 semesters, all Biology Department classes are online, except for some specific lab sessions in Microbiology and Physiology. 
We changed the name of our department from Life Sciences to Biology in 2017, along with many of our course numbers. Here is a list of all the changes.
 “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
