  • BIOL 119: N/GenBio:Diversity,Physiol,Eco

    An introductory course in the biological sciences covering animal diversity, animal biology, plant biology, and ecology. Counts for general education only when taken with BIOL 116. Prerequisites: BIOL 117. Offered every spring

  • BIOL 203: Principles of Ecology

  • BIOL 350: Foundations of Biostatistics

    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 a related requirement, but not both. Restricted to Majors. Prerequisites: Proficiency in Basic Requirements and BIOL 116. Credits: 3(3-0) Offered every fall.
