Fall 2016 Classes

BIOL 203:
Principles of Ecology

    A study of the interrelationship of organisms and their environment. Emphasis is placed upon levels of ecological organization. BIOL 117 and BIOL 119. Restricted to pre-biology majors, majors, and m

BIOL 250:
Biological Data Analysis

    Quantitative analysis in the biological sciences involves understanding the scientific method, experimental design, sampling theory, graphs, and data analysis and interpretation. Students will develop
    and test hypotheses using statistics and graphing techniques in computer-based laboratory exercises. This course may count as a Biology elective (but it does not count toward the laboratory course requirements) OR serve as the computer science/statistics related requirement. (Students may not receive credit for more than one 200-level statistics course, including credit for more than one of the following courses: BIOL 250, ECON 205, GEOG 278, MATH 242, MATH 262, PLSC 251, PSYC 250, and SOCL 211.) Restricted to majors. Prerequisites: BIOL 116. Offered every fall

BIPH 375:

    A study of the application of the fundamentals of physics to the problems of the biological sciences. Emphasis is placed upon representative topics demonstrating the analytical methods and the theory
    of those methods used in biophysics. Students will be expected to read and discuss current literature. Examples of topics include biophysical modeling, organ systems, and electromagnetic interactions. Prerequisites: BIOL 203 or BIOL 222, PHYS 223, MATH 222, or permission of instructor. Offered fall, even years
