    Biology is the obvious choice.

    I thought AAS BioTech because a portion of the semester involves Molecular Biology

    I'm pretty sure the Biology degree program requires a molecular biology course as well. If you want to be a molecular biologist, you're probably going to go to graduate school. A degree in general biology will give you more options as well in what to specialist in.

    Actually it involves MicroBiology but as long as I have something relevant to it thats all that matters I believe
