Classes

  • 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

    A study of the interrelationship of organisms and their environment. Emphasis is placed upon levels of ecological organization. Prerequisites: Proficiency in Basic Requirement. BIOL 117 and BIOL 119.

  • BIOL 250: R/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.) Prerequisites: Proficiency in Basic Requirement. BIOL 116. Offered every fall
